Veteran DT Kevin Williams: ‘Tell [the Patriots] to look me up’

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.”€
