Quinnen Williams was drafted No. 3 overall by the New York Jets in the 2019 NFL Draft. Now, the defensive tackle has been a key part of the team’s defensive resurgence. In 2021, the squad ranked dead last in the NFL in both points and yards allowed. In 2022, it ranked fourth in both. 

Now Williams is looking to get his bag. Williams is on the final year of his rookie contract but is reportedly seeking in the range of $25-30 million annually (for reference, Aaron Donald makes $26 million).

If the Jets don’t believe they can come to terms, they might deal the 2022 Pro Bowl DT this off-season to get the most for their value. Williams, for his part, seems open to a change in scenery if it means more greenery. He took notice when Giants All-Pro DT Dexter Lawrence signed a 4-year, $90 million extension ($60 mil guaranteed) in early May and recently changed his Twitter bio to say "Defensive Tackle for .... ." 

We are here to finish that sentence for him. Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has used his resources of NFL contacts developed over 20 years covering the league to create his hypothetical NFL futures odds on Williams’ 2023 team.

Williams is slated to make $9.5 million this season. Considering the production he had at the DT position, that’s a bargain. 

As it stands now, 23 teams can take on that cap hit without altering much else on the roster. 

It’s up to the Jets if they want to make such a commitment. They are in good shape from a cap perspective for 2023 and with Aaron Rodgers now under center, it’s likely they want to ensure the team is as good as possible right now. That means keeping Williams and dealing with the future, in the future. 

Williams would boost most teams’ interior D-line, but there are a few quasi-contenders with holes on the line that would transform things if acquired. The top three all reside in the NFC, where the Jets would surely prefer to ship him.

Potential Landing Spots For Quinnen Williams

The Detroit Lions jumped 5.5 wins in the standings in 2022 and appear poised to take the next step to contender status. That’s something the Lions have not consistently been in a real long time, and a status they desperately crave. Williams would be a huge upgrade to a team expected to lean on Alim McNeill and Levi Onwuzurike, and the Lions, with $26.2 million in cap space, can make the move without any subtractions required. 

The Seattle Seahawks had a heck of an offseason, but D-line, especially in the tackle spots, remain one of the more pressing question marks. The cap space is right where it has to be ($10.5M), but Seahawks brass has shown a propensity in making trades to better the squad.

The New Orleans Saints took a step backward, but injuries and QB play were hindrances for first-year head coach Dennis Allen. They now have Derek Carr under center, and the defense-minded Allen added DT Bryan Bresee in the first round and two DTs via free agency. Still, Quinnen would be a bigger sure thing, and they can afford him ($14.3M in cap room). 

The Chicago Bears have had the most cap space since the start of the off-season, and still do. DT remains an issue. They drafted help but not early, and have the resources to not just add Williams, but ink him to a lucrative deal. The Bears allowed the most points in the NFL in 2023. Sometimes the best help for a young QB is a strong defense. Justin Fields could use the help. 

The Houston Texans are in the midst of a full rebuild. It started with acquiring 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans to be head coach, then drafting QB C.J. Stroud and edge rusher Will Anderson Jr. with picks 2 and 3 of the NFL Draft. The Texans have draft pick capital to dangle to the Jets, and $17.3M in cap space to make something happen now and for the future. 

The Field includes other teams that can afford to make a play and offer an extension, even if it doesn’t address the biggest team need. That includes the Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals
