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.
