Jedi-Falcon Posted April 16, 2008 Share Posted April 16, 2008 http://www.ajc.com/sports/content/sports/f...alnot_0416.htmlJimmy Williams passes up workoutBy D. ORLANDO LEDBETTERThe Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionPublished on: 04/16/08Flowery Branch Falcons safety Jimmy Williams, a second-round draft pick in 2006 who has yet to break into the starting lineup, elected not to attend the second day of the team's optional minicamp practice Tuesday."Jimmy was not here today and, of course, these [practices] are optional," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "This is not a mandatory one."Smith said the staff was aware that Williams would not attend. He was the only player under contract not in attendance. Calls to Williams' cellphone were not returned.Williams played cornerback as a rookie. Last season, he was moved to safety and lost out to Chris Crocker for the starting free safety job.Erik Coleman, a free-agent signee, lined up beside Lawyer Milloy at free safety with the No. 1 unit Tuesday.Last season, Williams was moved to special teams, but after playing poorly, was inactive for two December games.---------------------I guess perennial Pro-Bowlers like Jimmy Williams don't need to practice as much.
