Jets, Quinnen Williams agree to historic four-year, $96M extension

The New York Jets have agreed to a four-year, $96 million contract extension Thursday with top young defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, keeping the former No. 3 overall pick in green and white for the next several seasons, per multiple reports.

Williams’ deal reportedly includes $66 million guaranteed and is the largest second NFL contract ever for a defensive tackle. Williams is also the first Jets first-round pick to sign an extension to stay with the team since 2011 draft pick Muhammad Wilkerson, according to ESPN.

While the deal has yet to be officially announced, the Jets hinted at it on social media Thursday soon after reports emerged.

Williams was one of the top prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft after an illustrious college football career at Alabama. He had a breakout 2022 season with 55 total tackles, 12 sacks and two forced fumbles. In his four-year NFL career, Williams has totaled 191 total tackles, 33 tackles for loss, 27.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.

Extending Williams was the last major priority for the Jets after an offseason highlighted by acquiring four-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers via a blockbuster trade with the Green Bay Packers. The superstar quarterback is expected to help an offense that includes reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson and veteran ex-Packers Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb at wide receiver.
