Inside Free Agency 2013 - Day 24: Cary Williams

Posted Mar 5, 2013

A look at the most interesting players available in 2013

The crazy time of year that is free agency is fast approaching, so KCChiefs.com has you covered with a 30-day free agency look, highlighting the 30 most intriguing free agents or players who could be released/traded during the offseason.

You may have noticed, there are no restricted free agents on the list, largely because they rarely leave their current teams. None of the reports are indicative of the Chiefs plans for the 2013 free agency season.

DAY 24 of 30

The Baltimore Ravens are expected to part ways with Cary Williams, according to the Baltimore Sun. If so, entering the prime of his career, it's likely the defensive back won't have to wait long for potential teams to be calling. Here's a look at some of Cary's strengths and weaknesses.

Name: Cary Williams
Position: DB
Height: 6'1
Weight: 190
College: Washburn
Born: December 23rd, 1984 (Miami, FL)
Age: 28
Experience: 4 years
Drafted: 2008, 7th Round-229th pick overall by the Tennessee Titans

Career Stat Line: 55 games (33 starts) 133 tackles, 28 assists, one sack, four INTs, 90 yards, 1 TD, 36 passes defensed and three forced fumbles

STRENGTHS:

Attacks the Ball

Williams was very active in the secondary, breaking up 18 passes this season and grabbing four INTs.

Consistency

Williams started every game during the last two seasons and had 75 tackles (fourth highest on the team) in 2012.

Big Plays in Big Games

Williams picked off Colts QB Andrew Luck, during their AFC wild card matchup, helping the Ravens advance in the 2012 playoffs, eventually becoming Super Bowl XLVII champions.

WEAKNESSES:

Lapses in Coverage

Williams has struggled, at times, in coverage, such as against the Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 3.

He also was beaten deep, after a double-move route by Broncos WR Eric Decker, 51 yards for the score, in Week 15.

FINAL TAKE:

I'll leave the final take to Cary Williams, who told the Carroll County Times that, "I know I'm worth more than what the deal was worth before," Williams said.

"I'm not going to throw out a number and say what the range I'm looking for is, but I feel like a team, whoever that is ... will pay me for what I'm worth. The sky's the limit for me now. I just feel like I'm an ascending player. I feel like I've gotten better each and every year."

I researched the stats and Cary (the Super Bowl champ) is right, he has improved. A team, if not the Ravens, will make room for the confident DB in 2013.
