09/06 Vikings: Williams agrees to three-year deal
Pat Williams will sign a three-year contract extension on Friday. "I'm happy that I'll be able to finish my career playing beside Kevin (Williams)," Williams told the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Wednesday. The deal is worth $22 million with $9.5 million in new guaranteed money.
There were rumblings that the Vikings were leery of signing Williams to a new deal because he is 34 years-old. However, he is fresh off a terrific season in which he helped the Vikings lead the league in run defense.
