  Jets | NYJ activate trio of players    Sat Aug 22, 02:21 PM

New York Jets LB Ryan Griffin (ankle) and LB Avery Williamson (knee) on Saturday, Aug. 22, were activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list while TE Daniel Brown (undisclosed) was activated off the Non-Football Injury list, and all three participated in individual drills in practice Saturday.

Footballguys view: It was a longer wait than expected for Williamson, but the team will welcome him back after C.J. Mosley opted out. Neville Hewitt, Blake Cashman and James Burgess will all be in the mix for snaps this year at inside linebacker, but Williamson should be the most valuable in IDP leagues. Griffin will be in on two tight end sets, but Chris Herndon has had a great camp and should be the clear #1 tight end, worthy of a late round pick as your #2 tight end.

  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.
