Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports believes the Packers could free up a lot of cap room if they decided to move on from cornerback Tramon Williams.
The Packers have ample space — especially considering how few young players are in line for extensions, which is an anomaly for them. But given Williams’ drop-off in play since landing a big deal, I would save the $7.5M by cutting him to reinvest in WR Jordy Nelson, free-agent WR James Jones or TE Jermichael Finley.
The Packers are also scheduled to meet with Sam Shields’ agent at the combine. They clearly want to re-sign him, which could lead to Williams being released.
