The New York Jets will open its offseason voluntary program without one of its talented defensive leaders.
Quinnen Williams, an All-Pro defensive tackle, is not reporting to the start of workouts, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Williams, 25, is looking for a new contract. He is due $9.594 million on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, but the former Alabama standout wants a new deal.
Both parties are trying to agree.
