Rams bring back Chris Williams

The Rams got a quick look at offensive lineman Chris Williams last season, but decided to take a longer one.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Rams re-signed Williams to a one-year deal today, which could be worth up to $2.75 million.

The former Bears first-round pick spent the back half of last year with the Rams after being released by his original team.

The Panthers had Williams in for a visit as well early in free agency. With the Rams, he’ll likely have to compete for a guard job, as they just signed Jake Long to play left tackle, and hope to move Rodger Saffold to right tackle, as soon as he returns the team’s calls.

    $2.75 mil for the guy to compete at guard. Brandon Moore, sure starter, on the market.

    Wonder how long he will last?

    Don’t underestimate the role that Williams flexibility playing both guard and tackle had in this. Saffold has played well, but both he and Long have missed plenty of time in the last two seasons.

    hay beavertonsteve you do realize 1 of the reasons the bears let him go is because of his injuries right? that and the fact he sucks and was a complete bust for them.

    The Bears inability to get anything out of him doesn’t change the fact that Paul Boudreau actually had him playing well when he filled in for the Rams at multiple spots last year.

    On top of that he’s bascially on a vet minimum deal with incentives and won’t be starting, so it sounds like a pretty good situation for both him and the team.
