Veteran CB Tramon Williams explained during an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio that he wanted to move on from the Browns because it “wasn’t a stable spot.”
“At the end of the day, those guys were just going in a different direction,” Williams said. “From the start of training camp to the beginning of the season, they were going in a different direction. And it came a point during the season to where I wanted to be released. That’s why we got released because it wasn’t a stable spot. It’s not a stable spot. You don’t know who’s going to be the coaches from year to year, and I didn’t know that so I didn’t want to be one of those veterans who is stuck in a spot and at the end of the day, I’m not going to be able to get a job because I was on a bad team. That’s why I wanted to get out of there.”
According to Williams, he has spoken with a few teams, but still plans to be patient about finding another opportunity.
“We talked to quite a few teams, but all and all, I feel like I’m in a position to where I can control kind of what I want to do,” Williams said. “I’m really excited about that. I’m ready to get to one of these teams and help out. And the team that I’m look for is going to be a team, obviously, that is stable and wants to win, so that’s kind of what I’m looking for at this point.”
Giants rookie QB Davis Webb explained that he’s putting in so much time learning the team’s offensive system so that he’s ready to step in and executive plays during training camp, as opposed thinking too much.
“This is important to me,” Webb said, via Jordan Raanan of ESPN. “I want to come back in training camp where I’m not thinking as much and just executing and reacting.”
Webb explained that he’s a perfectionist, which is why he’s been doing everything he can to get up to speed.
“I’m a perfectionist,” he said. “I’m very hard on myself and very critical. So I can get better. There are a lot of things I need to improve on, even touchdowns. There is something with my footwork or different coverage where I could’ve went somewhere else and made an easier throw.”
- Rich Cimini writes that the Jets should have around $80 million or so to work with in free agency next year, which should leave them among the teams with the most cap room.
- The Jets will have a number of notable free agents to address including: Sheldon Richardson, Morris Claiborne, Marcus Williams, Demario Davis, Wesley Johnson, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Josh McCown.
- Cimini isn’t sure there are any “must-sign” players headed for free agency next year, but the Jets obviously have the cap space to take of anyone they want to keep.
- Cimini says that it’s possible they could make a massive offer to a free agent QB Kirk Cousins next year. However, he’s hearing that they plan to target a quarterback prospect in the draft.
