Vikings reportedly have interest in K’Waun Williams

Former Browns cornerback K’Waun Williams has drawn some interest during his head start on free agency, and he may have more.

According to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings are doing their research on Williams and may be interested if he leaves scheduled trips to the Lions and Jets without a deal.

Williams is reportedly clear of the ankle injury which led to the disagreement with the Browns which led him to become a former Brown, and he’s been an effective slot corner in the past.

The Vikings could lose cornerbacks Captain Munnerlyn and Terence Newman to free agency, which would send them looking for depth.

    K’waun signs with Vikings: Spielman is a dope!
    K’waun sign with packers: Thompson does it again!

    I just wonder if they’ll have room after signing TJ Lang, JC Tretter, Don Barclay and Micah Hyde.

    I am sure that Zimmer can get the inside scoop on this fellow. We will need a slot corner to replace Munnerlyn who most likely will leave.

    Ted Thompson reportedly has interest in playing next year again with a very, very short deck.

    From the Browns to the Vikings? Ouch. Dude, get a new agent.

    I love this XFL news.

    He’s not good enough for the Browns.

    Perfect.

    I wish the Vikings could keep Captain, but he wants to start on the outside and get paid too. so this makes sense.

    A team can never have too many CBs, a sentiment I’m sure most Packer fans would agree with if this wasn’t written by a Viking fan.

  9. fwippel says: Feb 14, 2017 2:15 PM

    I hope they don’t overpay for him if they do land him. With Rhodes, Waynes and Alexander already in place, my guess is he has a battle with Alexander for the nickle back spot.

    But does K’Waun Williams have any interest in the Vikings? That is the question.

    If he has any aspirations of ever hoisting a Lombardi Trophy, the answer would have to be a resounding ‘no’.

    Lets beef up the secondary and O-line.

    Could be a 2-way starter to replace Waynes and Fusco.

    The Packers have gotten so far inside the Viking fan’s head that you should be charging rent.

    This is a post about the Viking’s looking at a player and half of the posts are examining Ted Thompson’s first round picks (by the way, the draft has 7 rounds and all of them can be important if you draft well in the later rounds).

    But let’s look at the team’s performances; the Packers have made it to the playoffs for 8 straight years while the Vikings have made it once since 2009. The Packers have won just as many playoff games this year as the Vikings have won in 10 years. And we wouldn’t even remind you of the ultimate prize, the Lombardi Trophies, or the Viking’s case, lack thereof.

    Sad comment section. The bottom line Packers 4 – 1 in SBs Vikings 0 – 4 “nuff said!

  29. Wonka22 says: Feb 14, 2017 10:00 PM

    Packer, and Lions fans for that matter, need to get a reality check: that being that both of you made the playoffs this past season basically by default. Had you suffered any real injuries/losses at all, and the Vikes not lost what, 7 starters, neither of your average squads ever sniffs the postseason.

  30. stellarperformance says: Feb 15, 2017 5:44 PM

    All teams have significant injuries. This is the first team from Minnesota with preseason predictions for greatness stymied by injuries. Boo hoo. The Packers have dealt with this circumstance many years in a row, including the year of their most recent SuperBowl victory in 2010, and including this past season. Rookie fan analysis. Been there, done that.
