  Jets | NY Jets finalizes Avery Williamson deal    Sun Mar 18, 03:55 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent LB Avery Williamson signed a three-year, $22.5 million deal with the New York Jets on Sunday, March 18. The deal includes a reported $16 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Williamson has the ability to stuff the run and he generally does a good job of diagnosing plays as they break down. He has the athleticism to play sideline-to-sideline in the NFL but playing coverage has been a problem for Williamson during his pro career.

  Titans | Avery Williamson rejects offer    Mon Mar 12, 05:43 PM

Tennessee Titans impending free-agent LB Avery Williamson recently rejected a four-year, $12 million offer from the Titans.

Footballguys view: Williamson reportedly has a couple of teams interested in his services (Dolphins, Jets), so the Titans are likely to lose him in free agency. He's good against the run and athletic enough to be on the field during passing downs...but he does get lost at times in coverage.
