Williams’ Status With Pack Unclear

                    Green Bay defensive tackle Corey Williams 

Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Corey Williams has some things going for him: he can become a free agent on February 29, and he is probably the most coveted DT among the free agents out there right now.  Those factors tend to turn the barometer in Williams’ favor during contract negotiations that the team are having with Williams’ agent.

But then again, the Packers do have some options at their disposal.  They can “franchise” Williams – although the tender is rather high ($6.263 million/year) for a rotational player – or if they choose not to sign or tag him, Williams becomes an unrestricted free agent on February 29.  The Pack as of right now are about $25 million under the salary cap, os a bump in Williams’ pay is likely; however, the team’s deep at the DT position.  I am going to venture to say that the Pack will sign Williams – to a long-term contract, but not at the “tender” rate of $6.263 million/year.
