Date:

Eagles RCB Cary Williams' $4.75 million salary for 2014 becomes fully guaranteed on March 16.

By the fifth day of the new league year, the Eagles will have to decide whether or not to cut Williams. All things considered, the 29-year-old didn't have a horrible year. Williams graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 92 corner out of 110 qualifiers in terms of coverage but was targeted the most times. He's also a willing tackler in the run game. The Eagles need safeties more than corners.

Eagles RCB Cary Williams (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 15.

Williams was a late addition to the injury report, but he's going to be fine to face the Vikings. Just 86th-of-111 in Pro Football Focus' cornerback ratings this season, Williams has graded out 98th strictly in pass coverage.

Eagles RCB Cary Williams was added to the injury report with a hamstring issue Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Williams was "nowhere to be seen" in the locker room after suffering the injury. Healthy all season, Williams should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Williams has graded out as the No. 86 cornerback (out of 111) in Pro Football Focus' ratings.

Eagles RCB Cary Williams (hamstring) has made it through just two practices in training camp.

Williams went down on the first day of camp, and has barely practiced since. He aggravated the injury Wednesday. It's a concern for a team with one of the league's worst secondaries on paper, but Williams should be ready for Week 1.

Eagles signed CB Cary Williams, formerly of the Ravens, to a three-year, $17 million contract.

The Eagles also signed FS Kenny Phillips, setting up their spanking new starting secondary. Williams will start opposite Bradley Fletcher while Phillips and Patrick Chung handle the safety spots. While Williams was a starter on the Super Bowl champion Ravens and posted four interceptions along with 17 pass deflections, he struggled mightily while under the microscope. During the regular season, opponents threw for 1,000 yards, six touchdowns, and a 91.6 quarterback rating while targeting Williams. This shouldn't stop the Eagles from considering Alabama CB Dee Milliner at No. 4 overall.

NFL Network's Michelle Beisner considers the Lions and Eagles the most likely landing spots for free agent CB Cary Williams.

The Eagles have signed Bradley Fletcher and the Lions retained Chris Houston, but neither will stop there. Both secondaries could use a 6'1/190 corner that is just 28 years old. Williams was our No. 10 cornerback available when free agency opened.

According to the Indianapolis Star, Colts coach Chuck Pagano was a "big fan" of free agent CB Cary Williams when Pagano was on Baltimore's staff.

Pagano coached Baltimore's secondary from 2008-2010 and coordinated the defense in 2011. Williams was roasted in coverage too much for our liking last season, but we can see the appeal because he's under 30 and blessed with ideal cornerback size. The Colts certainly have the salary cap space to land Williams.

The Baltimore Sun says the Colts will "probably" pursue free agent CB Cary Williams.

Williams isn't going to be back with the Ravens, and landing in Indianapolis with his former defensive boss, Chuck Pagano, makes a ton of sense. The Colts are really weak in the defensive backfield, and pairing Williams with Vontae Davis would make a capable duo. In January, Williams thought he might be worth $8-10 million annually, but there's no chance he gets that kind of money.

The Ravens are expected to allow free agent CB Cary Williams to hit the open market.

This has been the thinking since the season ended. Williams wants a ton of money, and his agent expects him to "very much be wanted by many teams." Baltimore has plenty of capable in-house replacements. Williams has a knack for giving up the big play, and some team may overvalue him in free agency.

The Ravens plan to touch base with free agent CB Cary Williams' representation at the Combine.

"The ultimate goal, if possible, is for Cary is to stay a Raven," Williams' agent said. "It's tough terrain with them because of their cap situation and them having to pay their quarterback. If it doesn't work out with Baltimore, I think Cary has elevated his game and himself. ... I'm expecting him to very much be a wanted man by teams." Both the Baltimore Sun and Carroll County Times expect Williams to walk.

The Ravens have stated adamantly that Joe Flacco is their only candidate for the franchise tag.

In other words, the Ravens won't be tagging CB Cary Williams or OLB Paul Kruger if they hammer out a deal with Flacco. The franchise deadline is March 4, and we suspect Flacco will be affixed with the pricey, one-year, guaranteed tender just ahead of that date. Williams and Kruger are likely headed for the open market.

The Carroll County Times says impending free agent CB Cary Williams is not expected to be re-signed.

The Ravens are expected to try re-signing Williams, but he may find more money on the open market than they can afford. Baltimore has a handful of capable in-house alternatives for right corner in Corey Graham, Chykie Brown, and former first-rounder Jimmy Smith. LCB Lardarius Webb is also returning from a torn ACL. Williams is said to be seeking upwards of $8 million annually.

The Baltimore Sun expects the Ravens to "try to keep" impending free agent CB Cary Williams, but says Williams might get more on the open market than Baltimore is willing to offer.

Beat writer Mike Preston points to the salary cap as an issue, as well as the improved play of Chykie Brown and Corey Graham coupled with Lardarius Webb set to return from a torn ACL in 2013. Baltimore also has former first-round pick Jimmy Smith waiting in the wings. It's been reported that Williams believes he's worth $8-$10 million per year on the open market, but we don't see him attaining that.

Impending free agent CB Cary Williams believes he might be worth $8-$10 million per year on the open market.

Williams turned down a three-year, $15 million offer from the Ravens prior to training camp last summer, then turned around and gave up over 1,000 yards, six touchdowns, and a 91.6 quarterback rating in his coverage this season. With Lardarius Webb expected to return from ACL surgery and former first-round pick Jimmy Smith aiming for a starting job, Williams may not be in Baltimore's 2013 plans. He's also going to be disappointed by his market.
