The New York Giants will likely not re-sign Jacquian Williams whose contract terminates on March 10. He will become a free agent and free to sign with any team he chooses.
The linebacker recently hinted in Twitter that his tenure with the Giants was complete. Williams tweeted this out:
Blessed to have been a New York Giant #BestFans #NYG
Williams played four years for the Giants starting 22 of the 51 games he’s played in, but he did not live up to the expectations the Giants had for him at weak side linebacker.
Williams was selected in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of the University of South Florida where he was teammates with current Giant Jason Pierre-Paul. Williams had 78 tackles in his rookie season where he played all 16 games with two starts most of those tackles coming on special teams. The biggest play of his career came in January of 2012 when the Giants played the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game and Williams stripped the ball from punt returner Kyle Williams setting up the Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes for the game winning field goal to send the Giants to their second Super Bowl in four years.
Williams will most likely end his stay with the Giants next week Tuesday at the start of free agency having recorded 173 tackles, 2 sacks, 19 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble and 5 fumble recoveries.
