Kevin Williams Wants Tom Pelissero to Call the Patriots For Him


Kevin Williams is one of the bigger names still floating around on the free agent market, hoping to land a job for 2014. At this point however, things are looking a little dire for K-Will.

How bad have things become for the former Vikings All-Pro defensive tackle? He’s enlisting the aid of reporters in trying to get the attention of NFL teams.

Williams was talking to Tom Pelissero recently for a USA Today piece when the New England Patriots came up as a possible destination for the one-time Minnesota stalwart. Williams seemed amenable to the idea of going to New England, and in fact solicited Pelissero’s assistance in making the deal happen.

“Well, give them a call,” Williams told Pelissero. “Tell them to look me up.”

Does Tom Pelissero have Bill Belichick’s hotline number? Something tells me he doesn’t.

New England would be a good landing spot for Williams if he wants to make a run at a ring. So would Seattle, but the Seahawks don’t seem that high on Williams after some reported early interest.

But it’s not all bad news for Williams. There could be a team out there that wants to sign him, but they could just be waiting until after June 1 when signing a veteran like Williams no longer negatively impacts them in determining compensatory draft picks.

There’s still a very good chance that Williams will play in 2014. It just won’t be back in Minnesota.
