The Jacksonville Jaguars can make a serious investment at right tackle.
Daryl Williams was a free agent last season but didn’t have much demand for his services after struggling in 2019 and missing the 2018 season with a torn MCL. He ended up signing a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills and is scheduled to hit the open market once again. However, he should get a better contract this time around, as he made the most out of opportunity and played 96 percent of the Bills’ total snaps on offense.
With Taylor Moton off the open market, Williams will arguably the best free-agent right tackle and should have a solid market for his services. While PFF predicts he will get a three-year $31.5 million contract, Spotract projects it will be closer to a two-year deal worth $15 million.
Regardless of the final amount, Williams will get a significant raise after making just $2.5 million in 2020. He was named Second-Team All-Pro in 2017 and there don’t seem to be any ill effects from the injury he sustained in 2018. Barring any major setbacks, the veteran should continue playing at high level and if the Jaguars think he could be an upgrade at right tackle, they will be able to afford his services in the open market.
