The skinny: The Eagles signed Williams to a three-year, $16.5 million contract in an effort to upgrade their secondary. Williams, who started every game last season while helping Baltimore win the Super Bowl, is expected to replace either Nnamdi Asomugha (San Francisco) or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (Denver) as a starter.
