Pay cut hurt pride, but Vikes’ Kevin Williams won’t step aside
EDEN PRAIRIE — An eventful, productive 10-year career with Minnesota for Kevin Williams has taken a sharp turn toward a final chapter.
First, the Vikings forced him to take a pay cut. Then they drafted his probable replacement with one of their three first-round picks in April.
Williams didn’t get to be a six-time Pro Bowl pick by being a pushover. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound defensive tackle doesn’t plan to meekly fade away.
