Vikings' Pat Williams undecided on his future
Vikings nose tackle Pat Williams reiterated Monday that he is 50-50 on whether he will return for the 2010 season and said he is going to go home and talk it over with his family. Williams admitted he feels "drained" after going through the Vikings' 31-28 loss to New Orleans on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game.
"I feel good [physically]," Williams said. "But yesterday was tough on me. It was draining. You do all that work during the season, so you just feel drained."
Williams said he does not have a timetable for when he would make a decision and told coach Brad Childress on Monday that he would call him once he makes up his mind. Vikings players went through exit meetings with their position coaches on Monday morning, then had a full team meeting and exit physicals.
Williams was asked how tough it would be to walk away after one of the most difficult losses of his career.
"It would be kind of tough," Williams said, "but I see how Brett [Favre] felt. Basically, like he said, you go through a season like that and you're drained. I feel like he feels.When he was in Green Bay he lost the NFC Championship [in 2007] and felt like he was drained. But he still felt like he had to come back and prove something."
