03/10/17 - DT Brandon Williams and the Ravens agreed in principle Thursday on a five-year contract worth $54 million -- including an eye-popping $27 million in guaranteed money -- that makes him the highest-paid nose tackle in the NFL.
Multiple teams, including the Tennessee Titans, were reportedly interested in the 6-foot-1, 340-pound Williams before he decided to stay.

He had 158 tackles (97 solo), 4 1/2 sacks, three passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 55 games (46 starts) with the Ravens.

06/16/16 - NT Brandon Williams did not practice on the final day of minicamp to attend the birth of his first child. Williams has established himself as one of the best run-stoppers in the league and is expected to be a force again this season. Ravens coach John Harbaugh was impressed with Williams throughout the offseason camps. "He's in fighting shape right now," Harbaugh said. "For a big guy to say that at this stage of the season is pretty remarkable. He's out there -- you can't block him (because) you have no pads on, but he's not getting moved, I can tell you that. I'm just very impressed with him and expect him to play really well."
