Packers remain in play for Tramon Williams

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers are still trying to re-sign free-agent cornerback Tramon Williams, according to a source familiar with their thinking.

Williams visited the New Orleans Saints Tuesday and Wednesday but left without completing a deal, according to ESPN NFL Nation Saints reporter Mike Triplett.

The Saints remain in play for Williams' services, according to Triplett's source, but they are also making a push to sign former New England Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner.

That could help push Williams back to the Packers.

The Packers would like to retain Williams, especially after losing cornerback Davon House to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but may be only willing to offer him a two-year deal that could average between $4 million and $5 million per season.

Williams has been ultra-dependable, playing in 140 of a possible 141 games in his Packers career, which dates to 2007. However, he will turn 32 later this month.

At the NFL scouting combine, Williams' agent, Rodney Williams, said age shouldn't be considered in his client's case.

"Everybody looks at that number 32, and it's based strictly on whether you're going to start breaking down and missing games," Rodney Williams said last month at the combine. "You're talking about a guy who's played in 140 out of 141 games, so if there's any player on that team that's going to show up every day, it's Tramon Williams, so I think that's going to be the exception to that age number that some people are putting out."
