EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams will sign a three-year contract extension with the team, he said after Thursday's practice.
Williams is making $2.65 million this season, the final installment of the original deal he signed with the Vikings in March 2005.
The 34-year-old has given them their money's worth with two of the best seasons of his career, helping Minnesota finish with the second-fewest yards rushing allowed in one year since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Williams went to the Pro Bowl for the first time last season.
``Everything's great now, so I ain't got to be worried about packing my bags,'' Williams said. ``It's straight home. All purple and gold.''
Last December, the Vikings locked up Williams' partner on the line, fellow defensive tackle Kevin Williams, to a seven-year contract that lasts through 2013.
