    Vikings pull transition tag off of CB Williams

    Vikings | Team pulled tag because of recalculation
    Fri, 10 Mar 2006 15:16:45 -0800

    ESPN.com's John Clayton reports the Minnesota Vikings removed the transition designation on CB Brian Williams after a recalculation of the one-year tender based on changes in the new collective bargaining agreement. The tenders for this year increased considerably from what teams expected ($5.89 million for a franchised cornerback and $4.77 million for a transitioned cornerback). It's not clear exactly what Williams' tender would have been under the new agreement. He would have made significantly more than the one-year tender of $4.77 million he was initially offered. After getting those new numbers, the Vikings decided he was too expensive and pulled the tender, making him a free agent.
    Someone I think the Rams would be wise to look at.

    Brian Williams

    The Vikings removed the transition tag from CB Brian Williams.

    New leagues rules called for Williams' contract to be guaranteed. Now an unrestricted free agent, Williams figures to be very popular considering his experience as a starting cornerback.

    Could be a target for us 12 picks in 4 years,4 sacks.
    We could be priced out though because he will be popular with many teams.

    Wow, we'd have to get really lucky or offer this guy a lot to get on this team. He'd be great for us though.

    Williams is good, but not great. More than five million a year, I'd have passed.
