The Packers reached a deal with cornerback Tramon Williams, avoiding another no-show situation similar to Ryan Grant‘s situation last year. The Packers signed Williams to a one-year deal worth $900,000. Williams will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.
The Packers had to get this signing done. With Al Harris and Charles Woodson having health issues, this was necessary for the depth of the defensive secondary. Williams filled in admirably for Harris while he was out with his spleen injury and the Packers should attempt to get a long-term deal done with him first. Of course, Greg Jennings remains the top priority.
The Packers will be seeing #38 on the field in nickel situations in 2009, something that comforts me greatly.
