Vikings sign FS Madieu Williams

The Minnesota Vikings signed FS Madieu Williams to a 6-year deal worth up to $34 million. I really like this signing. Madieu Williams is a budding star at safety, at only 26. His only concern has been injuries, he played in only 13 games last season, totaling 74 tackles, 2 sacks, and 2 INTs. At 6'1, and 205 lbs, Williams is known more for his coverage skills, but he has also greatly improved as a run defender over the years and I will look forward to see him in a Vikings uniform. Williams should really help the Vikings pass defense that has ranked at the bottom of the NFL for years, by providing the lacking over-the-top coverage needed in a cover-2.
