Williams signed his tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports. The four-year vet racked up 33 combined tackles and two interceptions one year ago.

Williams (ankle) is active for Monday night's game against the Colts. Williams will make his return from a high-ankle sprain that forced him from playing in the past two games.
