Louisiana native Williams visits Saints

According to ESPN Wisconsin, unrestricted free agent cornerback Tramon Williams was visiting the New Orleans Saints.

Williams is a Louisiana native, growing up in Houma, La., and played collegiately at Louisiana Tech. He has his offseason home in Napoleonville, La., about 75 miles from New Orleans.

Williams signed with the Packers in November 2006 after he had failed to make the Houston Texans’ final roster as an undrafted free agent that season.

But he developed into a solid starter, taking over as a starting corner in 2010—when he made his lone Pro Bowl appearance.

Last season, Williams had three interceptions and 14 passes defensed to go with 77 tackles, starting all 16 games.

He will turn 32 on Monday, however, and the Packers have been reluctant to offer him even the same money he had gotten—his five-year, $33 million deal signed in November 2010 expired Tuesday.

However, given the money cornerbacks were getting on the first day of free agency, that will likely drive up the price tag on Williams.

In eight seasons with the Packers, Williams has 28 interceptions and 144 passes defensed while also forcing five fumbles. He had six picks in 2010, setting a career high.
