Agent: cornerback Cary Williams has been contacted by a dozen teams

Cut by the Philadelphia Eagles, veteran cornerback Cary Williams has been contacted by a dozen NFL teams since his release, according to his agent. "We're trying to narrow it down," agent Harold Lewis said in a telephone interview. "We appreciate the Eagles showing the class they did by releasing Cary at this time and giving him the opportunity to seek employment with all teams having a full arsenal of cap space. The response for Cary has been overwhelming, how strongly he's been sought after. Supply and demand. The demand on corners is huge throughout the league. There's not a team that doesn't need one. "The supply is very limited. It's encouraging that people view Cary as a better corner today than two years ago when he came out of Baltimore. He's really appreciated for his aggressiveness, his man-to-man coverage and his desire to win. The team he wants to play for next will be a team that wants to win as badly as he does, that plays an aggressive defense and one that gives him a chance to put a Super Bowl ring on his other hand. Cary is a nasty corner who shuts down wide receivers." Williams was due a $6.5 million base salary next season. Williams plays the game with a combative nature, embracing an underdog mentality as a 2008 seventh-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans. He’s a big cornerback at 6 feet 1, 190 pounds and has the physical style and leaping ability to prevent receivers from making contested catches. Williams, 30, made $10.5 million in two seasons with the Eagles. He started every game over the past two years and had five interceptions. Responsible for covering elite wide receivers, including Dallas Cowboys star Dez Bryant, Williams allowed 56 completions on 96 passes thrown in his direction last season for 757 yards and five touchdowns. Opposing quarterbacks had an 89.5 passer rating against him. It wasn’t a stellar season, but Williams has a proven track record and played his best football with the Ravens. Williams started 28 games over four seasons in Baltimore. He had 75 tackles, four interceptions and 17 pass deflections during his final season with the Ravens. Williams declined a three-year, $15 million offer from the Ravens before joining the Eagles. Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
