Ravens' Williams turns down extension offer
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams has turned out a contract extension from the club, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Williams, per the report, was offered $15 million over three years, but apparently believes if he plays well this season, he could command even more with unrestricted free agency on the horizon in 2013.
"My philosophy on doing that was just having confidence in myself," Williams said. "I know myself, I know my ability. I know my work ethic. At the end of the day, the offer, I felt like I could always make that. I felt it wasn't good enough and my agent said it wasn't good enough. I love playing for the Ravens. I would love to be here, but right now we're just in the negotiation stage.
"For me to say the money ain't good, that wasn't the case. It's good money, but my job is to make the most money I possibly can for my family. I'm thinking about my daughter and any future children I want to have. I want some kind of security, and the deal we had wasn't like that."
