Deal for Williams Nearing

Per Carlos Holmes of the Middletown Journal, the Bengals are nearing a new deal with unrestricted free agent OG Bobbie Williams:

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the Cincinnati Bengals are close to a deal with offensive guard Bobbie Williams. The unrestricted free agent Williams has been a fixture along the Bengals offensive line since joining the club March 26, 2004.

Williams will be 34-years old this year and will likely sign a deal that would keep him in Cincinnati for the remainder of his career. Williams is known as a leader on the field and in the locker room.

This would be good news for the team.  Williams did an outstanding job last season in helping improve the run game, and he’s considered a solid character guy.  He recently won the team’s Ed Block Courage Award for 2009, and has made no secret that he’d like to finish up his career in stripes.
