Williams
If there was any concern about Minnesota nose tackle Pat Williams retiring, Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press found the answer: Williams plans to return for the 2010 season.

That was the word Wednesday from Williams’ agent, Angelo Wright. Williams said last month that he was “50-50” about returning, but he appears to have made his decision.

Regardless, the Vikings will have to start considering a succession plan for the position. Williams, 38, has one year remaining on his contract.
