Former Jaguars CB Darious Williams rejoining Rams

A week after he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars, veteran cornerback Darious Williams is set to rejoin the Los Angeles Rams on a three-year contract, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Williams began his career with the Baltimore Ravens, but was waived early in his rookie season and was claimed by the Los Angeles Rams where he stayed for the next three-and-a-half seasons. Williams played 43 games with the Rams and recorded six interceptions before becoming a free agent in 2022.

The Jaguars signed Williams to a three-year, $30 million contract, but he played only two of those years. Despite a strong second season in Jacksonville, Williams was released by the team earlier in March to clear $11.5 million in additional salary cap space.

As a player who was released, the contract Williams receives from the Rams won’t affect the Jaguars’ chances at getting a compensatory draft pick in 2024, which is unlikely anyway given the team’s activity Monday.
