Defensive tackle Kevin Williams is one of several veteran free agents on the market, but sounds like he’d be interested in signing with the Patriots.

Williams was speaking with a reporter from USA Today about the state of many veteran free agents at this time of the year — several of whom are still sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring — when he was asked about the possibility of playing for the Patriots alongside Vince Wilfork.

“œWell, give them a call,”€ Williams said of New England. “Tell them to look me up.”

The six-time Pro Bowler, who will turn 34 next month, has spent 11 years in the NFL, all with the Vikings. The 6-foot-5, 311-pounder has been pretty durable over the course of his career, as he’s only missed five regular-season games since entering the league in 2003. Williams has 60.5 career sacks, including 8.5 in 2008.

“€œI’€™m still weighing my options, man,”€ said Williams, who has visited the Seahawks and Giants. “Hopefully, I’€™ll be on somebody’€™s team in August and go from there.

“€œI’€™ve done well managing my money. I think I’€™d be fine if I don’€™t play,” Williams added. “But that’€™s my hope — I hope to be on somebody’€™s team before summer’€™s out.”€
