Ex-Jaguars CB Darious Williams Reportedly Set to Visit Giants

Darious Williams could soon find himself in the NFC.

Former Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Darious Williams is taking his first free agency visit. 

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Williams will visit the New York Giants on Sunday. With the Giants having a looming need at cornerback, Williams could reasonably walk into their building as a starter. 

Williams was released by the Jaguars earlier this week, along with defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi and safety Rayshawn Jenkins. Fatukasi has also had visits since being released, taking visits with the Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.

Williams played in all 34 games for the Jaguars over the last two years, while also playing in both postseason games in 2022. He started 29 games and recorded 106 tackles, five tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, four interceptions, and 35 pass breakups.

Williams started all 17 games in 2022 and had one of the best seasons of his career, recording four interceptions and 19 pass breakups.

With Williams and his 1,035 snaps on the outside now needing to be replaced, cornerback is obviously one of the biggest holes on the Jaguars' roster.

"We’ve got to add to that group, I think Coach Nielsen [Defensive Coordinator Ryan Nielsen] spoke on it, Coach Pederson [Head Coach Doug Pederson] probably spoke on it," Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke said last week at the NFL Scouting Combine.

"Now, I’m speaking on it. It’s a group we need to address. We feel good about the group we have, we feel like we’ve got some good, young guys to work with. We’ve got some veterans in there, but we’re definitely going to look to add to that group.”
