Veteran defensive tackle Kevin Williams is visiting with the Patriots today, reports CSNNE.com’s Tom Curran (via Twitter). The six-time Pro Bowler previously met with the Giants and Seahawks, but warned that he may retire if he didn’t receive an offer he liked. Yesterday, Williams jokingly asked for USA Today’s Tom Pelissero’s assistance in connecting him with New England.
Let’s take a look at some more notes and minor moves from the AFC…
- The Chiefs are working out former Troy University quarterback Deon Anthony, reports Aaron Wilson of NationalFootballPost.com. Last season, the versatile senior rushed for 432 yards and three touchdowns. He also threw five scores and caught ten passes. The Chargers worked out Anthony in April.
- The Bengals have claimed former Steelers wideout Jasper Collins, tweets Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. Collins was let go by Pittsburgh yesterday.
- The Jaguars claimed wide receiver Kevin Smith and subsequently waived long snapper Trevor Gillette, tweets John Oehser of Jaguars.com. Smith was waived by the Cardinals yesterday while Gillette was signed as an undrafted free agent about a month ago.
