Jets' Avery Williamson: Inks pact with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Finishes strong with 11 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williamson capped the regular season with 11 tackles (five solo), along with a tackle for loss and a pass defensed in Sunday's playoff-clinching, 15-10 win over Jacksonville.

Williamson brought his season total to 92 tackles with his second-best performance of the campaign in that category. Tennessee's strong interior linebacker play was often overlooked, but the Titans very likely would have missed the playoffs if not for excellent performances from Williamson and Wesley Woodyard. Williamson's turned out to be quite the find in the fifth round of the 2014 draft, as he's registered 376 tackles in his first four NFL seasons.

Titans' Avery Williamson: Gets third sack in four weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
