New, comments

Bengals.com writes, per the Dallas Morning News, that former Cowboys safety Roy Williams will come into Cincinnati on Thursday for a visit (what else would it be). Williams is considered one of the best safeties available, and definitely hardest-hitting.

In early March, Williams publicly requested and was given his release on March 5. The former Cowboys first-round pick is only 28 years old, has seven seasons under his belt with five Pro Bowls and one All-Pro selection. In his career, Williams has recorded 611 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 19 picks and 56 passes defensed. He started 92 consecutive games from 2002 to 2007 and returned three interceptions for touchdowns.

In 2006, Williams signed a $25 million extension on August 2, with an $11 million signing bonus. He was scheduled to make $4.4 million in 2009.
