Released by the Jaguars in September, Brian Williams’ first season with the Falcons ended in October with a torn ACL.
The Falcons will give him another shot in 2010, re-signing the cornerback to a one-year contract, according to Alex Marvez of FOX.
It’s possible Williams, 30, could play free safety, which he did at times in Jacksonville. Atlanta is very thin in the secondary, so this is a sensible low-risk deal.
Williams was our eighth-ranked unrestricted free agent defensive back, which says a lot about the lack of depth on the market.
