49ers among four teams to offer contract to CB K’Waun Williams

Feb 21, 2017 at 7:08 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are among the numerous teams that have expressed some level of interest in former Cleveland Browns cornerback K'Waun Williams, per NJ.com.

Williams has contract offers from four teams, including the New York Jets, which he visited last week. He also visited with the Detroit Lions. Other teams that Williams visited with or had plans to visit include the 49ers, Minnesota Vikings, and Miami Dolphins. It is unknown if those visits took place or which of those teams are among those that have offered a contract.

Update:
According to CSN Bay Area, the 49ers are indeed one of the four teams that have offered a contract to Williams. In addition to the Jets, the other two teams are the Lions and Dolphins.

Williams is expected to make a decision on a team later this week.

Williams, 26, has spent his entire three-year career with Cleveland after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He was primarily used as a slot corner with the Browns.

Williams did not play in 2016 after a disagreement with the Browns over the treatment of an ankle injury that he suffered. After refusing to play in a preseason game, the Browns suspended Williams and then, in August, waived the cornerback. He immediately signed with the Chicago Bears, but failed his physical.

Between 2014 and 2015, Williams played in 26 games – starting 10. During those two seasons, he had 10 passes defended, three forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles, and two sacks. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Cleveland when the Browns signed Williams. The cornerback also worked with Jeff Hafley, the 49ers current defensive backs coach, during his two seasons in Cleveland.

K'Waun Williams is one of nearly 40 San Francisco 49ers players scheduled to become free agents. And now, head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have their former defensive coordinator to contend with in free agency. On Thursday, the New York Jets named Robert Saleh as their new head coach, and there is some concern from the 49ers fanbase that many of the free agents on the defensive side of the football might follow their former coach. One fan stated on Twitter that Saleh could have a number of the 49ers defenders, including cornerback Richard Sherman. Two players who the fan hopes are untouchable are cornerbacks Jason Verrett and K'Waun Williams. Sherman (virtually and maybe in real life) laughed at the suggestion that Williams can't be allowed

The 2020 season didn't go as planned for the San Francisco 49ers. The team had hoped to make another run at the Super Bowl and erase the bad taste resulting from last year's heartbreaking defeat. Injuries spoiled San Francisco's plans, and Kyle Shanahan's squad missed the playoffs for the third time in the head coach's four seasons with the team. Which was the outlier? Is it the 49ers' impressive Super Bowl run following the 2019 season or the injury-plagued 2020 season that resulted in just six wins? ESPN writer Bill Barnwell believes it's the former and listed the 49ers among his predicted 14 teams
