Minnesota Vikings Sign Former Patriots Cornerback

The Minnesota Vikings have announced the signing of defensive back Joejuan Williams, formerly with the New England Patriots.

According to multiple sources, Williams signed with the Vikings after fully recovering from a shoulder injury that forced him to miss the entire 2022 season.

Williams was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots but had limited playing time in their secondary prior to his injury.

He played in 36 games during his time with the Patriots, seeing action in 552 defensive snaps since entering the league.

Despite his limited starting experience, the Vikings are giving Williams a second chance to prove himself and revive his NFL career. With his injury behind him, Williams is now healthy and ready to contribute to the Vikings' defense.

In total, over his three-year career, the 25-year-old has amassed 44 total tackles and eight passes defended across 36 games played. Photo Credit: Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports
