Mehta: Leonard Williams isn’t ‘thirsty’ for a contract extension, but Jets are gearing up to pay him next year

Todd Bowles’ defensive line was a force once upon a time with the Sons of Anarchy, but Damon Harrison, Sheldon Richardson and Muhammad Wilkerson are all part of Gang Green’s past. Williams, once believed to be a luxury after the Jets took him with the No. 6 overall pick in 2015, is now the longest-tenured defensive lineman entering his fourth season. He’s scheduled to earn $2.975 million in 2018. The Jets exercised their fifth-year option (for about $14 million) on Williams for 2019, but my understanding is that the team would like to sign him to a multi-year deal next offseason if he continues on the same path this year.
