    Vikings may lose CB Brian Williams

    [size=18px]Vikings may lose CB Brian Williams[/size]

    From news services

    Next to wide receiver Koren Robinson, cornerback Brian Williams might be the most valuable of the Vikings' 16 pending unrestricted free agents, but odds are he will be playing with another team next season.

    With free agency beginning March 3, Williams' agent said Tuesday that he has had no contract talks with the Vikings. Agent Jordan Feagan wouldn't rule out a return by the four-year veteran, but he indicated it's not likely.

    "Of course, there's no animosity," Feagan said. "It's not like we wouldn't consider coming back. Looking at it as an agent, I just don't see it."

    Williams replaced Fred Smoot as the Vikings' starting right cornerback during the middle of the 2005 season after Smoot suffered a shoulder injury. Williams held the job for the final eight games.

    With the Vikings switching to a Cover 2 defense, there has been talk of moving Williams to strong safety, but Feagan said his client has proved he's a starting cornerback.

    "Not only during the second half of last season; he's proved it through his career," Feagan said. "Some said he slipped two years ago, but he was playing hurt with a knee injury. As I look at the cornerback free-agent list, I think he's in the top three."

    The press has finally caught up with the obvious. I sure hope we can keep him somehow.

    Interesting that the Vikes haven't offered a contract. I wonder what's up the sleeve?

    Not a big surprise... I really wish we would atleast send in an offer and hope he takes it because he wants to be a Vike..

    We should give him Smoot's contract and Smoot gets minimum with a clause that allows him to make more..

    I really hope we can make a deal he is a very valuable peice to this D..

    And yes I think we can tag him.. Did we tag him last year? If so we are able to do that 1 more year.. I don't think he would sign it though

    We dont need Williams, Everyone forget about Dovonte Edwards? he will be a way better corner then Brian has ever dreamed of being and with Winfield, Smoot and Edwards why would we need Williams at corner? If he will play safety then that is cool but his agent said he wont so then i say goodbye Brian Williams.

    Re: Vikings may lose CB Brian Williams

    b will made like 3 plays this year and thats it..i will still never forget all the times that hes been burnt in 1 on 1 coverage with big, fat, slow TE's..he is an awful cover guy who misses tackles often..he made a couple nice plays this year (notice i said a couple) and you guys make him out to be amazing..hes not, he stinks, and hes no better than smoot..we can go get someone better than him to play in the 3rd corner spot through FA..it was his contract year so he stepped up and made his 3 plays in order to get paid, now he goes back to the b will of the last 2 seasons, where he got burnt at least 3-4 times a game

    such as who? ralph brown? adrian Ward? Ralph brown is just terrible, Adrian Ward hasn't played much at all. The only player i would be ok with being there is Dovonte Edwards, but even still, he's unproven and everyone loves him because of one big play against GB. We need to keep b-will and if we do lose him we need to get a solid NB in FA. we don't need a Stud at NB, just someone who consistently does what he's asked

    why does everyone on this site like a player because they make 1 or 2 nice plays all season? did you not see him get burnt for a TD later on in the same game that he picked off favre? you have to judge the guy on his entire season, and i saw him get burnt alot more times than i saw him make plays
