Jaguars sign rookie CB Williams to 4-year deal

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Cornerback Trae Williams signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars on Thursday, leaving Jacksonville with two rookies left unsigned before training camp.

Williams, a fifth-round draft pick out of South Florida, will compete for a backup spot behind starters Rashean Mathis and Brian Williams and nickelback Drayton Florence.

Trae Williams, who played alongside first-round selection Mike Jenkins at USF, ranks second in school history with 16 interceptions.

With Williams under contract, the Jaguars can focus their attention on getting first-rounder Derrick Harvey and second-rounder Quentin Groves signed before training camp begins July 25.
