Ian Rapoport is reporting that Avery Williamson will sign with the New York Jets:

It is a little bit sad to see Williamson leave. He was a good find in the draft who did some solid work here, but his fate here was sealed when they drafted Jayon Brown and Avery couldn’t push Wesley Woodyard off the field last year.

Hopefully he will find success with the Jets because he seems like a good dude, and he is a solid player. The good news is that the Titans are finally at a place where they are able to let solid players walk because they have better options on the roster. That is a credit to the job Jon Robinson has done in the draft since he took over 2 years ago.

The Titans are now thin at inside linebacker. Look for them to add one in the upcoming draft. They could even take one at #25 if he is the best player on their board.
