Pro Bowl defensive tackle turned down more money from Patriots to go to Seattle

Kevin Williams the former Pro Bowl defensive tackle reported to ESPN’s Ben Goessling, that his one-year contract with the Seahawks is worth a little less than what the Patriots were offering.

I am sure that is one of the first times the Patriots have had that happen to them, especially if you know the Patriots history. Most of the time, veteran players will be willing to take a pay cut to play for the Patriots rather than any other team, but it just goes to show you that the NFL is changing, and their are new powerhouses in the league.

Even Williams was surprised, when the Vikings made an offer to him after failing to contact him since the start of free agency.

“It was shocking that they got back in the fold at the end there,” Williams said. “I just think there were better pieces in place in Seattle. The familiarity with being in Minnesota was there, but a chance to (not) know if they’re going to win 10 games or three games (played into it). I wish them luck, but there’s no certainty there, and you have a proven quarterback in those two teams (Seattle and New England).”

I don’t know if Williams made the best decision, but the Patriots have some very solid young defensive tackles that should be just fine this year.
