Joejuan Williams, a cornerback with the Patriots, has had a terrible career, but it has taken a turn for the worst recently. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Williams sustained an injury to his shoulder and will not play again this season due to his absence.
Williams is a veteran of three NFL seasons after initially joining New England as a second-round draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Vanderbilt. However, he hasn’t done much during his time in the NFL, starting only one game over the course of his first three seasons. Williams is currently 24 years old.
The 6-foot-3-inch, 212-pound player has participated in 36 games, making one start, and has recorded 38 total tackles in addition to seven tackles on special teams. In addition, he has participated in two postseason games, starting one of them, and has added five total tackles and one tackle on special teams.
Now, the fourth and final season of his four-year rookie deal has already come to an end before it ever started. Williams is scheduled to become a free agent in the month of March. It’s quite unlikely that he will ever play for the Patriots or any other team in the NFL again.
