Giants, Leonard Williams Not Close To Long-Term Extension

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano doesn't think that the New York Giants and defensive tackle Leonard Williams will come to an agreement on a long-term contract extension before the July 15 deadline. Williams wants to be paid like a premier pass-rusher (around $18-20 million a year), and the Giants haven't wanted to pay him that amount. On top of it, uncertain salary cap figures in 2021 are making teams be even more careful with long-term deals. General manager Dave Gettleman is all in on Williams after trading for him, but not everyone in the organization might be. If he plays the 2020 season on the tag, it'll be worth $16.1 million. The 26-year-old had just half a sack in 15 games with the Giants and Jets last year and has 17.5 career sacks in his six seasons. Williams could be a late-bloomer, but fantasy owners can leave him to the waiver wire in IDP leagues.

Leonard Williams To File Grievance Over Franchise Tag

New York Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams has officially submitted his case to the NFL Players Association, who will file a grievance on his behalf over the franchise tag. Williams was tagged by the Giants and signed the tag, but he was designated as a defensive tackle by the team, whereas he argues he is a defensive end. The franchise tag for defensive tackles is worth $16.1 million this year, while the tag for a defensive end is worth $17.8 million. Williams spent the majority of his snaps on the interior in 2019, so it may ultimately be a losing battle.

Leonard Williams To Sign Franchise Tag

New York Giants defensive end Leonard Williams will sign the franchise tag with the team. It remains to be seen if he will be tagged as a defensive tackle or as a higher-priced defensive end, but sources confirm that Williams will indeed remain with the team. He was acquired last season and Giants general manager Dave Gettleman made sure that Williams wasn't just a half-season rental. The Giants will have until July 15 to try to work out a long-term deal, but they've guaranteed that Williams will be around on at least the one-year deal.
