Tramon Williams is entering the building. The veteran free agent needs a new team and the arizona cardinals need a new cornerback - it could be a perfect match. The two sides will spend some time trying to figure that out this week. If a deal is reached, Williams will have a good chance to continue his career and play alongside one of the best at his position. The Cardinals are looking at more than one candidate for the role, though.

Williams comes to town

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Williams will be visiting the desert team on Thursday. The visit comes as the Cardinals open up training camp with an open competition at cornerback.

He has spent the past two years on the Cleveland Browns, but was unhappy with the team due to their inability to field a winning roster - he was thrilled the team released him in February. He was probably less thrilled when he wasn't picked up during free agency.

Williams spent the bulk of his career with the Green Bay Packers, earning a Pro Bowl trip with the team back in 2010. He was not drafted when he came out in 2016, so he truly rose from nobody to stardom during his career. He clearly fell off statistically after signing a three-year contract with the Browns in 2015, though. He'll be motivated to prove to the Cardinals that he still has one more act left in his career.

Cardinals cornerback camp

On one side of the field, Patrick Peterson will be lining up. He is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL and can completely shut down one side of the field. Beyond that, there's plenty of open space to be had in the Cardinals' defensive backfield. Tramon Williams would be a good fit, but he isn't the only veteran the team is looking at this week.

On Wednesday, the team met with another former Pro Bowl cornerback, Brandon Flowers, who has played for the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs. He has a concerning history with concussions, but the Cardinals may be willing to take a chance on him through a very small salary anyways.

There's another cast of characters competing for roles in Arizona's secondary, including Brandon Williams, Jumal Rolle, Justin Bethel, and Harlan Miller.

None have the pedigree of someone like Flowers or Tramon Williams, though. As training camp opens up and the dynamic offense takes the field to remind people of the team's strength, many will cast their eyes on the secondary and wait to see how the team chooses to address it.
