Report: Bengals and Roy Williams agree to terms

While cleaning a compromised computer at work today, Chris shines this instant message in my face that forces me to jump out of my chair. It was scary! Former Dallas Cowboys safety Roy Williams has agreed to terms with the Cincinnati Bengals, writes Steve Wyche of NFL.com. Williams visited the Bengals in mid-March; the coaching staff came away impressed.

What does all this mean for the Bengals? Depth. Competition. After Chris Crocker, Chinedum Ndukwe, and Marvin White, the Bengals have a collection of must-prove-something safeties. However, the key thing with Williams could be filling the veteran leadership in the secondary that Dexter Jackson's void opened when he left. Yes, he had veteran leadership qualities, even though his play wasn't that great at times.

Williams' agent says that his client likes it in Cincinnati and took considerable less money.

"There were a couple of teams offering considerable more money, but Roy liked the fit in Cincinnati," Jordan Woy said. "It's a good fit for both sides really. Roy obviously has a great relationship with (defensive coordinator) Mike Zimmer and he's excelled in that defense and the Bengals are happy to get a guy like that for their defense."
