Report: Kevin Williams takes big pay cut to stay with Vikings
A fixture on Minnesota's defensive line for a decade, Kevin Williams will come back for an 11th season at a reduced price. ESPN 1500 Twin Cities says Williams agreed to a restructuring that will pay him about $2.5 million less in 2013 and make him a free agent in 2014.
ESPN 1500 Twin Cities reports Williams agreed to a restructuring that will pay him $4.9 million this season and make him a free agent next season, instead of earning $7.5 million each year.
The five-time, first-team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowler turns 33 in August and is coming off a season in which he posted 20 tackles and two sacks. Still, Williams clogs running lanes playing the “3-technique” and graded out as the league’s 10th-best defensive tackle, according to Pro Football Focus. He has started all but four games of his 10-year career.
With the move, Minnesota is $6.9 million under the cap heading to the draft.
