Tramon Williams To Visit Browns

Free agent cornerback Tramon Williams continues to draw interest from around the league, and having already taken visits with several other teams, the 31-year-old will head to Cleveland today to meet with the Browns, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN (Twitter link).

Williams has already met with the Saints, while the Eagles, Titans, and Vikings have also shown varying levels of interest. New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Tennessee have each added secondary help in recent days, signing Brandon Browner, Byron Maxwell and Walter Thurmond, and Perrish Cox, respectively, so those clubs might not longer be a fit for Williams. A reunion between Williams and the Packers isn’t completely out of the question, either, as we heard on Thursday that there is “genuine mutual interest” between Green Bay and its free agent CB.

The Browns, meanwhile, are looking to add a corner after 2014 starter Buster Skrine signed with the Jets last week. Cleveland does have last year’s first-round pick Justin Gilbert in tow to line up opposite Pro Bowler Joe Haden, but the club has reportedly been disappointed by Gilbert, and may be aiming to add a veteran presence on the outside. At the very least, Williams would buy the Browns some time as Gilbert continues to develop.

Williams started all 16 games for the Packers last season, notching three interceptions, and grading as the league’s 34th-best CB among 108 qualifiers per Pro Football Focus (subscription required).
