  Free agent DT Kevin Williams tells Tom Pelissero of USA Today that he is hoping to be on a roster by August. “I’m still weighing my options, man,” said Williams. “Hopefully, I’ll be on somebody’s team in August and go from there.” Williams has worked out for the Seahawks and Giants since free agency got underway back in March, but it appears as though these teams offering close to the veteran’s minimum for his services. Pelissero notes that the minimum base salary for players with 10 or more credited seasons, which Williams obviously has, is $955,000. Williams did mention that he would be a good fit for the Patriots, even though they have yet to show interest in him. However, in the event he doesn’t get a worthwhile offer, he would be willing to call it career. “I’ve done well managing my money. I think I’d be fine if I don’t play,” Williams said. “But that’s my hope – I hope to be on somebody’s team before summer’s out.” Williams, 34, has spent eleven seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, and was considered one of the best interior lineman in the league for a large potion of his career. In 2013, he totaled 28 tackles, 3.5 sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus rated Williams as the No. 27 interior defensive linemen in the league. We have him listed as the No. 3 player in our recently updated Top 50 – Best Available Free Agents list.
