Another one bites the dust. Brandon Williams — a potential Titans target at nose tackle — will remain a Raven.

This one is tough. Williams is a young player ready to hit his second contract going into his prime. He would have been a big get, but likely is demanding a lot of money. Just a thought, but I would guess this means we may see the Titans in on Dontari Poe or Johnathan Hankins. If they aren’t, that means they likely trust Austin Johnson in that role going forward.
Just like last year, Jon Robinson has steered clear of the big money. He took care of some special teams players and added Johnathan Cyprien, but it’s been a quiet day one. I would think he gets started attacking the secondary pretty soon. We also should get an answer on Brandin Cooks soon.
Here’s the money for Brandon Williams. That’s not too bad, honestly.
