Browns defensive lineman Corey Williams made it clear last year that he wasn’t happy in Cleveland. Now he’s on the way out.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that unnamed sources say Williams will land with the Lions in exchange for a late-round draft pick. Mortensen writes that Williams is scheduled to take a physical on Friday to finalize the trade from the Browns to the Lions.
Although acquiring Williams would bolster the Lions’ defensive line, Mortensen writes that the Lions wouldn’t be done upgrading their defensive line there. Per Mortensen, the Lions may also sign free agent defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch and draft Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
Williams played in all 16 games for the Browns last year and recorded four sacks.
