Bengals Safety Madieu Williams has signed a free agent deal with the Minnesota Vikings this week as the free agency period got underway in the NFL yesterday. Williams had spent his entire 4 year career with Cincinnati and was the pick that the Bengals received when they dealt Corey Dillon to the Patriots 4 years ago. Williams looked incredibly talented at times but injuries have plauged him throughout his career.
Williams joins an incredibly talented defense in Minnesota, and we will all see if he did not shine due to the Bengals system, or he was never much to talk about anyway. The 6 year deal is worth a total of $33 million and allows Williams to rejoin with his old Defensive Coordinator, Leslie Frazier.
Does this mean the Bengals are alright with Marvin White and Chinedum Ndukwe as their starting safties? Let’s hope the visit of Marlon Mcree changes that…….
