“I don’t know if January is going to be January as it has the last two years, where some very good players have been out there,” Williams said. “If I’m those players and those players agents, I don’t know if I’m going to wait for that team to come sweep me off of my feet in January. You might want to take the best deal you can get, as early as you can.
“That non-tender list will be interesting to watch. Based on what happened last year, where there were some guys who got stuck out there, I would anticipate more deals are made with potential arbitration and free-agent guys.
“You’ve got a combination of that, combined with your lack of overall talent in my opinion — impact-type talent — that is free,” William said. “There’s impact talent in the league for sure, but they are established guys that aren’t moving anywhere or they are young guys up and coming that are more and more difficult to get.”
