Falcons re-sign veteran CB Williams
Share This Story
Falcons are re-signing cornerback Brian Williams to a one-year contract, a source told FOXSports.com. Financial details weren’t disclosed.
The 30-year-old Williams started Atlanta’s first five games last year after being signed at the end of the preseason following his release from Jacksonville. Williams then suffered a major knee injury against Dallas in October. The still-rehabilitating Williams may not be ready to participate in Atlanta’s offseason minicamps but the Falcons are optimistic he will contribute in 2010.
Williams has made 98 starts in an eight-year career that also includes stops in Minnesota and Jacksonville. Williams was set to hit the market Friday when the free-agent signing period begins.
