Cary Williams rejected a contract extension offered by the Baltimore Ravens.
The 27-year-old cornerback stated that he is confident in his abilities to prove over the course of this upcoming season that he is worth a more substantial offer. Williams will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason.
Via the Baltimore Sun:
"My philosophy on doing that was just having confidence in myself," Williams said. "I know myself, I know my ability. I know my work ethic. At the end of the day, the offer, I felt like I could always make that. I felt it wasn't good enough and my agent said it wasn't good enough. I love playing for the Ravens. I would love to be here, but right now we're just in the negotiation stage.
"For me to say the money ain't good, that wasn't the case. It's good money, but my job is to make the most money I possibly can for my family. I'm thinking about my daughter and any future children I want to have. I want some kind of security, and the deal we had wasn't like that."
The Washburn University product was chosen with the No. 229 overall pick by the Tennessee Titans in the 2008 NFL Draft. In Nov. of 2009, the Ravens signed Williams off the Titans practice squad and he has remained a member of the team since.
