Rams, CB Darious Williams finalizing 3-year deal

As soon as Darious Williams was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason, fans and analysts linked him to the Los Angeles Rams – the team he spent three-plus years with from 2018-2021. It took a week but Williams is heading back to L.A. to play for the Rams again.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Rams and Williams are finalizing a deal, which is expected to be for three years. The terms of the contract were not yet disclosed but Williams is returning to the team he broke out with in 2020 when he was one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the NFL.

In two years with the Jaguars, Williams played all 34 games and made 29 starts. He intercepted four passes and had 35 deflections, returning one of his interceptions for a touchdown. Despite being undersized at only 5-foot-9, Williams is a talented outside cornerback capable of matching up with bigger receivers because of the way he plays the ball in the air.

He now joins a cornerback group that includes Derion Kendrick, Cobie Durant and Tre Tomlinson, though it remains to be seen who will be the starters next season.
