Will Aaron Rodgers Cut The Jets a Break?May 17, 2023
Jets star defensive tackle Quinnen Williams is making a bold statement about his ongoing contract dispute and it’s clear he won’t let up until his demands are met. Following a career-best season, Williams has been vocal about his desire to be recognized as one of the best defenders in the game and paid accordingly. And he’s not shy about using social media to make his case.
On Monday morning, Williams changed his Twitter bio, which now reads “Defensive Tackle for ……………….” While some may see this as a small gesture, it’s evident that Williams is conveying both his confidence and authority in the situation.
A quick scroll through his Twitter profile shows numerous retweets and comments from Williams and his teammates, who are advocating for the organization to recognize and reward Williams’ dominant performance on the field. Williams even retweeted a clip of GM Joe Douglas expressing optimism that a deal can be reached.
At 25 years old, Williams is set to play the 2023 season on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, which would pay him a shade under $9.6 million for the year. However, with fellow Big Apple star Dexter Lawrence receiving a lucrative four-year, $87.5 million deal with $60 million guaranteed, Williams understands and acknowledges his worth as a first-team All-Pro and a dominant force in the league.

Williams is a team player and has always put the organization first, but he also recognizes the importance of being compensated for his exceptional performance on and off the field. As he said after the season, “I feel like I deserve to get a contract done before the offseason program just because I did everything right on the field, everything right off the field, and just having the organization behind me just like I’m behind them to show that they really support me and different things like that is an amazing thing for me. I just want to be compensated for what I am.”
In summary, Williams is a confident and authoritative advocate for himself who understands the worth he brings to his organization and is willing to go the extra mile to ensure he is compensated accordingly.
