A key piece of the Rams secondary will not be back in 2022. Darious Williams is finalizing a three-year contract with the Jaguars, returning to his hometown of Jacksonville. According to Ian Rapoport, the deal is for three years and has a base value of $30 million. It’s worth up to $39 million, however, which would be an average of $13 million per year.
That would put him in the top 20 of all cornerbacks in terms of annual salary. He also gets $18 million fully guaranteed at signing.
Rapoport added that Williams had higher offers, but he wanted to return home to Jacksonville so he chose the Jaguars.
