NFL Rumors: Kevin Williams wants to re-sign with Minnesota Vikings

This offseason will be a critical one for the Minnesota Vikings, as they are going through a regime change and cannot afford to drag their feet at all. The team hasn’t been legitimately good since they went to the NFC Championship Game in 2009 and it’s new head coach Mike Zimmer’s job to fix that.

Zimmer is a defensive minded coach, so naturally his first decisions may be to figure out what he wants to do with the Vikings expiring contracts on that side of the ball. One of those expiring contracts is long-time Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams.

According to the Pioneer Press, Williams wants to stay with the Vikings and re-sign this offseason.

“I still feel the same way,” Williams said. “I’d like to play a couple more years (with Minnesota), but that’s totally up to the Vikings.

The Vikings defensive front could get overhauled this offseason. They have two guys guaranteed to being staying in Sharrif Floyd and Brian Robison, but Jared Allen may be wearing a new uniform next year and Williams may not be brought back.

It all depends on how much Williams thinks he’s worth and whether or not the Vikings agree with the number he has in mind.
