Report: Chiefs visit with RFA Xavier Williams

Authentic Jersey The Cardinals made the decision to tender defensive tackle Xavier Williams as a restricted free agent and they may have to make another contractual decision about him soon.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that Williams visited with the Chiefs this weekend. If they sign him to an offer sheet, the Cardinals would have to choose whether or not to match that deal.

If they opt against it, they will get no compensation back from Kansas City because the undrafted Williams was tendered at the original round level. That tender calls for a salary of $1.907 million if Williams s out the year under the deal.

Wood said he does not expect to play the Vikings on Thanksgiving again this year, and would rather the Lions host an NFC North opponent than a team like the Patriots.

I would rather not have the Patriots on Thanksgiving, Wood said. It might be good. Gives them a short week to prepare, but I think that鈥檚 going to be a big game no matter when it鈥檚 played. I think Thanksgiving鈥檚 kind of, division opponents are fun. We鈥檒l see what the schedulers give us.

If the Detroit Lions open the 2018 season on the road, they’ll have Ed Sheeran to blame.
