  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Pittsburgh-bound in trade

    Williamson was traded to the Steelers on Sunday along with a 2022 seventh-round pick for Pittsburgh's 2022 fifth-rounder, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Williamson goes from the only winless team in the league to the lone undefeated team. Once he gets acclimated to his new surroundings, Williamson figures to slide into a starting inside linebacker role for the Steelers. He suited up for the Jets earlier Sunday, leading the team with nine tackles in a 35-9 loss to the Chiefs.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Nine tackles in Week 3 loss

    Williamson recorded nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Colts. Williamson was one tackle shy of Bradley McDougald's team-high total on the afternoon.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Restructures contract

    Williamson agreed Monday to a restructured 2020 contract worth $3.5 million, including $1 million guaranteed, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Williamson will have the earning potential of $5 million, but the new deal saves the Jets $3.75 million in cap space for the 2020 season. The 28-year-old is coming off a torn ACL that cost him his 2019 season, so the restructuring could be looked at as a "prove-it" deal before he enters free agency this coming offseason.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Returns to practice

    Williamson (knee) was activated from the PUP list Saturday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Williamson has been recovering from an ACL tear that resulted in him missing the entire 2019 season. His value for the Jets increased after C.J. Mosley's decision to opt out opened up more cap space for the Jets and made him more of a priority. Barring any setbacks, he 28-year-old appears on track for Week 1.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: On track for Week 1

    Williamson (knee) said Wednesday that he expects to be healthy for the start of the 2020 season, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports. Williamson is recovering from an ACL tear that caused him to miss the entire 2019 campaign. He looked like a potential cut candidate in New York earlier this offseason, but C.J. Mosley's decision to opt out both opens up cap space for the Jets and makes Williamson more of a priority. The 28-year-old managed 120 tackles, three sacks and an interceptions across 16 games with the team back in 2018.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Potential offseason cut

    The Jets might consider releasing Williamson (knee) once he can pass a physical, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Signed to a three-year, $22.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason, Williamson had 120 tackles and three sacks in his first year with the Jets but then suffered an ACL tear last preseason. The timing of the injury should allow him to complete his rehab before Week 1, potentially having him join 2019 offseason pickup C.J. Mosley (groin) to give the Jets a formidable duo in the middle of their defense. On the other hand, Mosley's contract still has strong guarantees and Williamson's doesn't, so the Jets could decide to release the latter if they prefer an extra $6.5 million in cap space to use elsewhere on the roster. Dating back to his time in Tennessee, the 28-year-old Williamson started 63 of 64 possible games in a four-year span before his ACL injury.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Placed on IR

    Williamson (knee) was placed on IR Saturday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Williamson's move to IR comes as no surprise after he was diagnosed with a torn ACL on Friday. He was a vital piece of the Jets defense in 2018, and his absence will open up a significant number of inside linebacker snaps. Neville Hewitt will figure to step into a starting role with Williamson out for the season.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Finds success in first year as Jet

    Williamson finished the 2018 season with a career-high 120 tackles (80 solo) and three sacks, also adding an interception. Williamson latched on with the Jets as a free agent after four seasons in Tennessee, and the move seems to have paid dividends for both sides, as Williamson easily eclipsed his previous high of 104 tackles. He's also consistent when it comes to getting to the quarterback, recording between 2.0 and 3.5 sacks in each of his five NFL campaigns.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Forces fumble Sunday

    Williamson recorded nine tackles (six solo), a pass defensed and a forced fumble across 77 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. In a contest dominated by the Jaguars, Williamson was one of the lone bright spots on the Jets defense. The linebacker forced a fumble and tipped a pass that resulted in an interception. He was second on the team in tackles and played in 100 percent of the defensive snaps.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Inks pact with Jets

    Williamson signed a three-year, $22.5 million deal with the Jets on Friday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports. Williamson fills the Jets' middle linebacker void that was created when they let Demario Davis walk in free agency. The four-year pro has two seasons with over 100 tackles, but Williamson saw just 41 defensive snaps per game in 2017 and fell short with only 92 tackles. With a hefty pay day on deck and little competition surrounding him, expect Williamson to be a Week 1 starter.

  • Avery Williamson: Likely signing with Jets

    Williamson is expected to sign a contract with the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Williamson should slide in at starting inside linebacker for the Jets alongside Darron Lee, replacing the departing Demario Davis. The former fifth-round pick was one of the top inside linebackers on the market after totaling 92 tackles (52 solo), three sacks and two forced fumbles for the Titans in 2017.

  • Titans' Avery Williamson: Gets third sack in four weeks

    Williamson racked up six solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 25-23 loss to the 49ers. Williamson and Wesley Woodyard form a dynamic duo at inside linebacker that's as effective as it is alliterative. Each of the two was able to sack quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo once in this one, and Williamson now has three sacks in the past four weeks. The 25-year-old Williamson also cleared the 75-tackle mark for the fourth consecutive season since being selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

  • Titans' Avery Williamson: Gets first sack in Week 12

    Williamson recorded nine tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts. Williamson has been up and down over the past four weeks, racking up performances of 14 and nine tackles while posting a combined five stops in the other two games during that stretch. The sack was his first of the season.

  • Titans' Avery Williamson: Leads team with 14 tackles

    Williamson had a team-high 14 tackles (six solo) against the Browns on Sunday. Sunday's total doubled Williamson's previous season high of seven tackles, but most of this increase is attributed to assisted tackles, so it may not be sustainable. Regardless, the 25-year-old remains on pace for his third consecutive 100-tackle season.

  • Titans' Avery Williamson: Records first sack of 2016 on Sunday

    Williamson produced a sack and nine tackles Sunday against the Browns. Despite a quiet performance in Week 5, Williamson has now posted at least nine tackles for the third time in his last four games. Although the sack he recorded was his first of the season, he also intercepted a pass in Week 3, and his recent versatility is making him a player to watch, as he's working himself toward being a viable IDP option.

  • Titans' Avery Williamson: Notches 12 tackles in Sunday loss

    Williamson notched 12 tackles Sunday against the Texans. Williamson had recorded six tackles in each of the first two games of the season, but he's shown increased production lately. After registering nine tackles and an interception in Week 3, he followed that up with his 12-tackle effort to give him an average of nine tackles since Week 2. After recording 102 tackles in his second NFL season in 2015, he's someone to consider as a solid source of tackles.
