Tramon Williams visits Cleveland Browns

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Tramon Williams must be holding out hope for a better offer.

The Green Bay Packers' free-agent cornerback, who visited the New Orleans Saints last week and remains in communication with his old team, is spending Sunday with the Cleveland Browns.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Williams was scheduled to visit the Browns, who are looking to replace cornerback Buster Skrine. The Browns lost Skrine to the New York Jets in free agency.

The Packers remained in contact with Williams late last week after his visit with the Saints and were making efforts to re-sign him. However, indications were that the Packers were offering only a short-term contract, perhaps as short as two years, and for considerably less than the $7.5 million he made last season in salary and bonuses. The Saints likely aren't interested anymore given that they signed cornerback Brandon Browner shortly after Williams visited.

Williams will turn 32 on Monday but has been ultra-durable. He has played in 140 out of a possible 141 games (including playoffs) since he first made the Packers' roster in 2007.

The Packers already have lost one cornerback, Davon House, in free agency. House, a backup for most of his four seasons in Green Bay, signed a four-year, $24.5 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.
