The Jets signed experienced depth player Isaiah Williams to their offensive line.
Williams has had a fascinating NFL career, playing for several different clubs in his quest to make the roster.
Following a number of injuries at the position, Williams provides Joe Douglas another offensive line alternative to consider before cutdown day.
It may be a little late in the preseason for Williams to earn a spot on New York’s 53-man Week 1 roster, but he gives the team another option.
Williams is aware of the qualities the Jets need from their offensive linemen. The 28-year-old participated in two games for the 49ers’ zone-blocking formation last year.
Williams’ connection with Benton and Matt LaFleur most likely influenced New York to take a chance on the interior offensive lineman in the late offseason.
Williams joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Akron and has since played for seven different organizations.
The native of Ohio signed his first contract with Washington in September 2016 and afterwards played for the Chiefs, Colts, Washington once more, Raiders, Saints, Ravens, and 49ers.
Williams had only ever played on the practice squad prior to last season, so it wasn’t until he arrived in San Francisco that he made an appearance in a regular-season game.
How Much Does Isaiah Williams Make?
Isaiah Williams’ average annual salary is $952,500. Williams’ base salary in 2022 will be $895,000, and his cap hit will be $895,000.
