  • Jets' Quinnen Williams: Wants extension after 12-sack year

    Williams finished the 2022 season with 12.0 sacks, 55 tackles (35 solo), four passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 16 games.

    Williams' career high sack total is even more impressive when you consider that he accrued it while rushing from the interior. The Jets picked up his fifth-year option for 2023, but Rich Cimini of reports that Williams is hoping to get a long-term deal done by April. Williams can't quite demand Aaron Donald money ($31.7 million per year), but he's the league's premier source of interior pressure after Donald and is seeking to become the second-highest paid defensive tackle at more than $21 million per year.

  • Jets' Quinnen Williams: Makes early impact in return

    Williams (calf) totaled two solo tackles, one sack, one pass defensed and a forced fumble in Thursday's 19-3 loss to the Jaguars.

    After missing the previous game, Williams made an immediate impact, ending Jacksonville's first drive with a strip-sack of Trevor Lawrence to set the Jets up with an instant red zone opportunity. New York ended up settling for a field goal and it was all Jaguars after that, but Williams' ability to pick up where he left off prior to getting injured is a small silver lining for the Jets. The sack was Williams' 12th in 14 games.

  • Jets' Quinnen Williams: Officially questionable

    Williams (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Jaguars, Rich Cimini of reports.

    Head coach Robert Saleh said Tuesday that Williams would be a game-time decision Thursday, so his questionable designation comes as no surprise, though the 2019 first-round pick's return to full participation Wednesday is certainly an encouraging update.

The defensive tackle has 47 tackles, 11 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 532 defensive snaps this year.
