  • Current Contract

    At the time of signing, Quinnen Williams' 4 year, $96M extension was the 2nd highest average paid defensive tackle in NFL history ($24M), and his $66M of practical guarantees is the most ever handed out by the New York Jets organization. Williams, 25, was set to play out a $9.59M 5th-year option in 2023 before the agreement, but is now signed through the 2027 season. The Jets freed up $3.15M of cap space by extending Williams out of the option salary.

    The deal includes $47.835M guaranteed at signing, with another $15.509M becoming fully guaranteed in March of 2025. This $63.3M represents the practical portion of the contract, through the 2025 season.
