Brian Williams to the Jags

Jags nab cornerback Williams with 6-year, $32M deal
By John Clayton
ESPN.com

One day after gaining his surprise freedom from the Minnesota Vikings, cornerback Brian Williams struck gold and agreed to a six-year, $32 million deal with the Jaguars that included a $10 million signing bonus.

Williams was designated a transition player last month by the Vikings even though he was the third cornerback behind Fred Smoot and Antoine Winfield. The transition tag at the time was relatively cheap for a cornerback at $4.774 million.

Those numbers changed when the collective bargaining agreement was extended Wednesday. A calculation change in the transition number happened when the league was mandated to included past franchise and transition numbers in the 2006 numbers.

Williams is considered a physical cornerback with good man-to-man skills and comes to an already talented defense.

Kind of pricy... but I guess he's better than who they have now.

So that means Cromartie can fall to the Saints in the 2nd... with the Jags addressing their CB issue

I don't think cromartie is going to fall that far in the first place. He's likely the 2nd CB drafted after jimmy williams.

Yikes, huge deal.

Wanted him to sign with Washington, but not for that price.
