Veteran defensive tackle Kevin Williams has made the tour, and said he’s looking for a good fit with a quality team which includes a winning quarterback.
Despite those qualifiers, the Vikings are back in the mix.
“They might be trying to ease back in the picture,” Williams said of the Vikings on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com. “We’ll know more maybe as the week goes on.”
“My main criteria has really been having a chance to win and playing with a proven quarterback,” Williams said. “Those things are huge when you get older, you want to have that chance to get in the dance and just be there to have a chance at the end of the season. You don’t want to take that beating all year to just go home for another offseason. . . .
“The game in the trenches is tough enough as it is, and to not be playing for something at the end is tough at this point.”
Williams said the idea of playing as part of a rotation with the Patriots was discussed, and something that appeals to him.
He’s also checked in with the Giants and Seahawks, teams that are closer to the items on Williams’ wish list than the Vikings.
Now he just needs someone to fulfill the financial part.
