Draft Scout Dan Williams News
03/12/15 - DT Dan Williams left the Cardinals for the Raiders Wednesday (March 11), agreeing to terms on a new contract. Williams, a first-round pick by the Cardinals in 2010, is expected to fortify the run defense for new Oakland coach Jack Del Rio and defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. Williams had 32 tackles and one sack last season and tallied 157 tackles and two sacks in 70 games with Arizona.
03/08/15 - NT Dan Williams, unrestricted FA update, is a starter and has shown improvement over the past few years. But the Cardinals made no move to re-sign him before his contract expired. That was a bit of a surprise, considering their struggles to find a nose tackle before drafting Williams. The Cardinals likely are figuring that Williams is a part-time player (37 percent of snaps in '14) and they don't want to overpay.
12/31/14 - NT Dan Williams has missed practice time this week because of a foot injury. Williams was limping badly in the locker room on Wednesday. Alameda Ta'amu is the official backup but he's played sparingly this year. Frostee Rucker and Tommy Kelly could play some inside if Williams can't play or is limited.
07/30/14 - NT Dan Williams (knee) missed time after having the joint drained. It's not believed to be serious and he should be back at practice this weekend.
10/10/13 - NT Dan Williams is trying to not let the death of his father, Thomas, interfere with his work. That's something Thomas Williams always emphasized to his son. "The one thing my father taught me was, no matter what the issues are going on outside, you definitely have to do your job," Williams said. "He always told me there might be distractions and other things going on, but you still have to go to work. He said the boss man don't really care. It felt good to be back out there with my teammates."
