Los Angeles Rams cornerback Darius Williams is expected to join the Jacksonville Jaguars on a three-year deal worth up to $39 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The contract includes $18 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN’s Dan Graziano.
It will mark a homecoming for Williams, who was born in Jacksonville.
Williams will join a loaded free-agent haul for the Jaguars that includes wide receivers Christian Kirk and Zay Jones, tight end Evan Engram, guard Brandon Scherff, linebacker Foyesade Oluokun and defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi.
Williams, 29, played 14 games with 13 starts during the 2021 regular season and started all four playoff games for the Super Bowl-champion Los Angeles Rams.
He missed three games last season while on injured reserve because of an ankle injury.
The Rams claimed Williams off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens in 2018. He has played 42 games total for Los Angeles, becoming a fulltime starter for the Rams last season. He had a career-high four interceptions in 2020 and has six in his four NFL seasons.
He went undrafted out of UAB in 2018 and signed with the Ravens, playing three games for Baltimore that season before being waived.
