Pat Williams was widely expected to leave the Vikings this offseason as a 38-year-old free agent. His comments on Wednesday just sealed the deal.
“Everything’s good. I am not coming back. Going to go finish elsewhere,” Williams said via Scout.com.
Minnesota wants to get younger on the defensive line, and their run defense slipped in 2010. Williams hints that personal issues, however, are at play with his desire to leave.
“Just don’t trust everybody over there no more,” he said. “I feel if I got your back and you don’t got my back, trust [is] gone.”
Williams wants to play two more years and we don’t particularly doubt that he could. He’s the new Ted Washington.
