New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Now that the offense has for the most part been taken care of, the New England Patriots can now turn their attention to their defense; on Wednesday, the team signed former Minnesota Vikings safety Tank Williams to a one-year, $730,000 deal, according to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald.  This would be the second signing of a secondary player in 2 days for the Patriots.

Known as a hard hitter and is versatile, as well – playing both safety positions, he more than likely will be the backup to both Rodney Harrison and James Sanders, taking over for Eugene Wilson.  Williams started his career with the Tennessee Titans, spending 4 seasons there, being selected in the 2nd round of the 2002 NFL draft; he also spent 2 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, appearing in 13 games (with 2 starts).  The Vikings wanted to retain him, but Williams explored his options due to the Vikings signing former Cincinnati Bengals safety Madieu Williams.
