Leslie Frazier wants Pat Williams back

By most accounts (including the subject’s own), Pat Williams is not expected to return to Minnesota in 2011. The mammoth nose tackle is 38, not under contract and dismayed by some in the Vikings organization.

But if head coach Leslie Frazier has his way, Williams will still be wearing purple next season.

"We had a good talk," Frazier told reporters at the NFL owners meetings, according to ESPN. "I think we're on the same page with some things. Love Pat. Been great for me. Especially when I was in the [defensive] coordinator role. Been great for our locker room. You guys know Pat as well as I do. Love Pat."

Williams’ return could be in a reduced role. Last season, if there was even a hint of chance that the offense would run the ball, Williams remained on the field.

"We'll have to see where things go," Frazier said. "He has some things he wants to achieve. We have some ideas about the direction we want to go as well. He knows what those directions are, and we'll have to see how it all plays out."

Williams is old but still valuable, if not vital, to Minnesota’s run defense. His size and power alone command double teams, and he’s still capable of penetrating and sliding laterally down the line of scrimmage.
