Los Angeles Rams cornerback Darious Williams is expected to join the Jacksonville Jaguars on a three-year deal worth up to $ 39 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The contract includes $ 18 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN’s Dan Graziano.
It will mark a homecoming for Williams, who was born in Jacksonville. He is the second cornerback in two years to sign a multi-year free agency contract with the Jaguars when Shaquill Griffin joined the franchise last year on a three-year contract.
Williams will join a packed free-agent group for the Jaguars, which includes wide receiver Christian Kirk and Zay Jones, tight-end Evan Engram, guard Brandon Scherff, linebacker Foyesade Oluokun and defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi.
Williams, 29, played 14 games with 13 starts in the regular season in 2021 and started all four playoff games for the Super Bowl champion Rams.
He missed three games last season while on injured reserve with an ankle injury.
The Rams demanded Williams’ exemptions from the Baltimore Ravens in 2018. He has played 42 games in total for Los Angeles, and became a full-time starter for the Rams last season. He had a career-high four interceptions in 2020 and has six in his four NFL seasons.
He left UAB in 2018 and signed with the Ravens, where he played three games for Baltimore that season before being sacked.
