2011 NFL Free Agents: If DT Pat Williams Leaves The Vikings...

So you wanted a big-name defensive lineman to come into Kansas City and hold down the nose tackle spot until sixth round pick Jerrell Powe is ready?

Enter Pat Williams. The Minnesota Vikings nose tackle is scheduled to be a free agent and it's unclear where he'll sign, but the Kansas City Chiefs may be an option. Williams could return to the Vikings but said recently he would less inclined to do so if they went with a rookie quarterback not wanting to start over again.

AP blogger Texas Chief tells us that Williams was on Sirius NFL Radio last week and, when asked where he might want to go if he left Minnesota, he said he wanted to play for a winner, and mentioned Kansas City as one of the teams that could use some help with run-stuffer. 

(Side note: How awesome is it that some players look at KC when hoping to play for a winner?)

So keep that in mind. We're not sure if the Chiefs have any interest but there's at least a raised eyebrow from the Williams' camp, should he decide to leave the Vikings.
