Jets star DT Quinnen Williams reportedly seeking contract extension worth $25 million per year

The frustration among the star player not having found a home is growing as the free-agent period is likely to end very soon. Quinnen Williams of the Jets recently expressed his desire to remain with the team while talks are ongoing.

The Jets don’t want to lose the Quincy and Quinnen brothers to another team because they are proving their value on the field and seem to be developing as they carve out their careers with the Jets.

NFL Network reports that the Jets and free agent linebacker Quincy Williams have reached an agreement on a three-year, $18 million contract with $6 million in annual incentives that could push the overall value to $21 million.

Will Quinnen Williams end up being renewed by the Jets?

Following the brothers’ contract, Quinnen appears to have grown more eager to don the Jets jersey once more and asked the team for a trade. Prior to becoming a free agent, the Jets signed Quincy; however, the team’s decision regarding the other brother is still up in the air.

QW announced his intention to extend his contract this offseason prior to his end-of-season news conference, and he is anticipated to withhold services in the optional portion of the offseason program in April following the 2023 NFL draft.

The 25-year-old wants to break the record despite the teams’ reluctance and track record of not signing their first-round picks in recent years.

“I’ve seen the stat that they haven’t re-signed a first-round draft pick in the last seven to 10 years, something like that,” Williams told.

Quinnen is about to begin his fifth season with the team and has a deal through 2023. However, if the Jets and he reach an agreement on a multi-year contract extension, the Jets will likely have to pony up $23 to $25 million per season, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.

The Jets’ interest in the DT is now the source of concern. The trade was approved favorably by the team’s general manager.

”We’ve had good decisions with Nicole and Quinnen since the season ended, and we feel really good about where we’re at. we feel good that this process is going to play out in the right way,” he said.

Are the Kyler Murray draft rumors an Arizona Cardinals smokescreen?

With a career-high 12 sacks, 24 QB hits, two strip sacks, and three pass defenses while playing for the Jets, the defensive tackle has emerged as one of the best interior defensive linemen in the NFL. In 16 games, Williams recorded 12.0 sacks, 55 tackles, 4 passes defended, 2 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovery for the 2022 season.

It will be wise for the New York team to have the DL back on their roster after he became the first Jets, defensive lineman, to be named to the All-Pro first team since John Abraham in 2001, according to’s Jason Fitzgerald, an NFL contract expert.

“From a public relations standpoint, it would be a disaster if the Jets didn’t do [an extension],” said Fitzgerald. “The way I look at it, Williams has a ton of leverage because the Jets don’t have any guys they’ve extended recently. You want to put that positive vibe out there. Getting into a contract dispute with him, there’s probably not going to be anything positive out of that.”

Jets must add Quinnen Williams to form strong defensive team

QW established himself as a key component and a good fit for the Jets over the course of his time with the team. Now, only time will tell if the Jets decide to re-sign the defensive tackle. The last player to receive an extension was 2011 draft choice Muhammad Wilkerson on the defensive line.
