Williams was arrested Jan. 17 in Tennessee on speeding and drug charges, Caroline Sutton of NewsChannel 5 Nashville reports.
Initially stopped by police officers for speeding, Williams drew an additional charge after prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia were found in his vehicle. The Patriots are aware of the incident but won't comment on the matter at this time, per Michael Giardi of NFL Network. The 2019 second-round pick played in nine games for the Patriots this season, recording five tackles and one pass breakup.

Patriots' Joejuan Williams: Headed to New England
The Patriots selected Williams in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 45th overall.
Williams has an unconventional build at corner (6-foot-4, 211 pounds), and he amplified the concerns that come with that by running just a 4.64-second 40. Vanderbilt didn't exactly possess a shutdown pass defense, either, so Williams doesn't really project as a consistent man coverage option at corner. He might be viewed as a candidate for safety snaps or some other sub-package function, but it would probably take some accommodation to turn him into a three-down player at corner.
