Williams, 26, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State back in May of 2014. He was waived from the Texans’ practice squad a few weeks into the regular season before later signing on with the Jets.
Williams played out the final year of his three-year, $1.53 million contract before returning to the Jets on a one-year, $2.75-million restricted contract this offseason.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Williams would free up $2,746,000 of available cap space while creating no dead money.
In 2016, Williams appeared in 13 games for the Jets and recorded 33 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, a forced fumble and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 70 cornerback out of 112 qualifying players.
