According to a report by Ian Rapoport, the Jets have scheduled a meeting with K'Waun Williams today.

Williams was released by the Browns in August after a high profile spat around his decision to not play in a pre-season game and hold himself out of practice.

In essence the Browns believed that Williams ankle was fine, so they fined him for conduct detrimental to the team. After being cut, Williams would receive surgery for the bone spurs that he had been complaining about, proving that he did indeed have an injury. He is now pushing for the Browns to reimburse him for his 2016 salary of $600K.

It was all far too public with reports suggesting that he was just upset about his playing time and was actually contemplating retirement. However these proved to be false following the surgery. The Browns later claimed that they had not been made aware of the injury until after the pre-season game.

The good news for Williams is that he has been cleared as fully fit by Dr Anderson and he has two visits lined up already.

After signing with the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2014, he was pretty productive for two years in Cleveland as a nickel corner. He racked up 69 tackles, 2 sacks, 8 passes defensed and 3 forced fumbles, receiving rave reviews by coaches at the time.
