Talks between the Bengals and free agents, Madieu Williams and Landon Johnson are set to begin Friday and could last, possibly, through the weekend. With free agency one week from Friday, you get the impression that this weekend could be the final shot at an agreement between parties. That doesn't mean an agreement won't be reached before midnight Friday
If sides are far apart, I doubt an agreement happens before free agency.
The Vikings have expressed interest in Williams.
