    Brian Williams

    I think we should've kept brian williams, he showed that he was as good if not better than smoot last year.

    Thanks to PPE for the awesome Sig.

    He showed he was as good, if not better then an injured smoot.

    Smoot's been to the pro bowl and played at a very high level for a handful of years in the NFL, so I wouldn't count him out for one bad injury plagued year.

    I don't see a huge difference in the 2 personally. Williams was a better and more physical tackler, and Smoot(again when healthy) is a better cover corner.

    I wouldn't have paid Williams what jacksonville did though.

    EXACTLY, you took the words right out of my mouth.

    I wish we would have kept Brian Williams, but not for the Jaguars payed him.





    The Jaguars have made their first splash in the free agent pool by signing ex-Viking corner back, Brian Williams. OK, maybe it’s not a splash, more like a ripple, but they are paying Williams big time free agent money. The deal has been reported to be 6 years and $32 million with a $10 million signing bonus. Williams should fill a hole at the right corner back position playing opposite standout corner and 2003 second round pick, Rashean Mathis.

    Brian Williams is only 26 years old and is coming off a season where he had four interceptions, 30 passes defended and 35 tackles in 14 games. Williams has great ball skills and should get many chances for interceptions playing opposite Mathis, and behind the great Jaguars pass rush. It is believed that one of the main reasons Williams decided to come to Jacksonville was his affiliation with ex-Viking head coach, Mike Tice.

    It is not yet known how the contract is structured, but it should still leave plenty of cash for the Jags to continue shopping in this somewhat barren, free agent market. What was believed to be the Jaguars main free agent target, Le Charles Bentley has already signed with the Cleveland Browns earlier this morning.

    I would have liked to keep him. In the end though he pretty much made it clear that he didn't want to be a Viking anymore and I'm glad we didn't try and keep him for that amount of money.

    Thanks Josdin

    Re: Brian Williams

    They gave him basically what we gave Smoot. It was 6 years 34 million with a 10 million signing bonus, if I remember correctly.

    Hell yes we should have kept him. We gave up a really solid cornerback and have replaced him with absolutely no one. Yet another part of our horrendous off-season thus far. Maybe they are willing to give Devonte Edwards the very important Nickel roll because he made a good play against Green Bay. Or maybe they are going to attempt to fill that void with a rookie, I don't know.

    Hopefully Smoot learned a lot from last year. I mean opposing WRs sure did take him to school quite often.
    When it s all said and done, you ll have to admit we re number 1!

    forget Brian Williams.

    The biggest steal of this free agency was Andre Dyson who just signed a 5 year 11 million contract. We should have went after him. He is a lot better than Fred Smoot and Brian Williams and they make about 5 million a year.
