Although his preference was to re-sign with the Seattle Seahawks   Chris Tomasson of TwinCities.com reports Kevin Williams wants to play at least one more year and have another shot at a SuperBowl. Williams (a six-time Pro Bowler) played with the Minnesota Vikings for ten years before joining the Seahawks last year on a one-year deal as nose tackle replacing Brandon Mebane.  He will rejoin Vikings team mate and Saints wide receiver assistant coach, Greg Lewis, as a member of the Saints organization.

“I want to go back to Seattle, but this is a business,’’ Williams, 34, said Thursday in a phone interview with the Pioneer Press. “They’re still evaluating their roster. I guess there’s not that many 12-year veterans that everyone wants. Everyone wants to go younger.”

“I went down there (New Orleans),’’ Williams said. “We talked. It was a good visit. I would fit in there. But I don’t know what’s going to happen.’’

“I want to play,’’ Williams said. “But I’m not in a hurry to get anything done, just like last year.’’

Williams, in a limited capacity, is a great pick up for the Saints.  What say you?

Williams, 34, played all 16 games with the Seattle Seahawks last season, starting in place of injured run-stuffer Brandon Mebane down the stretch. Although Williams is entering his 13th NFL season, he proved to be a capable rotational lineman in 2014.  He has appeared in 187 career games with 179 starts, recording 495 tackles, 63 sacks, 68 passes defensed, eight forced fumbles and 13 fumble recoveries.
