"That was back in the early stages of the franchise tag," Williams said. "You got to keep your player, but there was also a financial gain for the player. At the time, I was young and you have all these emotions built up. I was an undrafted player. I wasn't a first-round draft pick. I hadn't been to any Pro Bowls. There were a lot of different emotions for me. It ended up working out well for both sides, but the player has to be in agreement with the organization and on the same page. It's a lot of money involved with the franchise tag.
