Ravens bring back defensive tackle Brandon Williams with five-year deal

It took a few hours of the league year, but the Ravens kept one of their key defensive players.

Via a tweet from his agents, the Ravens are re-signing defensive tackle Brandon Williams to a five-year deal.

While they didn’t use the franchise tag on him, they were intent on keeping the run-stopper around.

Losing big-ticket free agents Rick Wagner (Lions) and Kyle Juszczyk (49ers) helped create some flexibility, but Williams was already viewed as a building block.

It’s a nice climb for a guy who used to work moving portable toilets, who said of the job: “Sometimes you got a little poop on you.”

His paycheck definitely won’t stink now.

    He’s the one guy you dont mind overpaying to make sure he stays put. Great signing, many fans thought there was no way we could afford him.
