Does anyone think that cornerback Tramon Williams deserves to be paid like one of the top cornerbacks in the league? Maybe three years ago that would have been okay, but not heading into the 2014 season.
However, Williams' average salary is currently the ninth highest for cornerbacks in the NFL, according to Spotrac.com. What the Packers ultimately need to do is rework Williams' contract so his cap hit isn't nearly as severe as it currently is.
This might not be what Williams wants, but he should realize that he's simply not the player he was when the Packers originally gave him his big contract. He's still got the potential to be the No. 2 cornerback on the team, which is what his contract should show.
Reworking Williams' contract to lower the value of it is an offseason move the Packers need to make.
