Quarterback questions have been the main focus of the Jets offseason to this point, but figuring out where they’re going at that spot isn’t the only thing on the to-do list for the team.

They also have to sort out a new contract for defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. Williams is heading into his fifth season after being named an All-Pro in 2022 and he’s looking for an extension before the team’s offseason program gets underway later this year.

On Tuesday, Jets General Manager Joe Douglas said the team feels good about the direction conversations with Williams and his agent Nicole Lynn have gone so far.

“We’ve had several good discussions with Nicole and Quinnen since the season,” Douglas said, via Brian Costello of the New York Post. “We feel really good about where we’re at. We feel good that this process is going to play out in the right way.”

The Jets guaranteed Williams’ $9.594 million salary for 2023 when they exercised their option on his contract last year, but it’s probably more likely that Williams is playing on an entirely new deal before the 2023 season gets underway.

  1. Really good player..under utilized because of too much rotation..needs to be paid

  2. “Jets “feel really good” about where things stand with Quinnen Williams” …

    I hope they can keep Williams, but that comment does nothing to make me think this is close to being wrapped up.

    In reality it is meaningless. People have said that and almost immediately walked out the door never to return.

    Crazy that he’d be listed as “All Pro”. Classic NY hype train.

    Still can’t get over noodle arm being exposed as not having what it takes. Reality can be quite a trip for someone who denies it..
