If traffic isn’t too bad getting from his suburban home, Chris Williams just might be on the practice fields in Bourbonnais in time for practice here in two hours.
The first-round pick agreed to terms on a five-year contract and is expected to sign it when he arrives at Olivet Nazarene University.
Williams’ five-year deal has a base value of $13 million and can top out at more than $15 million if he meets various triggers. The deal includes roughly $9 million guaranteed.
We’ll see if he’s on the field when the action gets going in a little while.
