Reports: Patriots host free agent DT Kevin Williams

Posted Jun 5, 2014

Various reports indicate that the Patriots hosted former Vikings DT Kevin Williams on a free agent visit on Thursday.

According to a variety of reports, the Patriots continued to consider veteran free agent options by hosting veteran defensive tackle Kevin Williams on a visit in Foxborough on Thursday.

Williams is a veteran of 11 NFL seasons, all with the Vikings. He’s a six-time Pro Bowl talent who in his prime was a dominant interior player.

Interestingly the visit may have come thanks in part to Williams’ own prodding of the Patriots through the media.

In a recent story regarding veteran free agents finding the job hunt a bit difficult this offseason he told USA Today of New England, “Tell them to look me up.”

A few days later he was apparently in town making his case for employment in person.

In his 11 seasons the 6-5, 311-pound Williams has played in 171 games and recorded 60 sacks. While he’ll turn 34 later this summer, he’s never played in fewer than 14 games in a season and played all 16 games eight times.

While the Patriots have a lot of bodies on the depth chart on the defensive line, many have health concerns including Vince Wilfork (Achilles), Tommy Kelly (ACL), Armond Armstead (infection) and Dominique Easley (ACL). Williams could add even more competitive depth and certainly experience to the position in New England were he to sign with the team.

Should the Patriots sign Williams? Does the team need another defensive tackle body? Let us know with a comment below!
