ESPN Packers blogger Rob Demovsky considers CB Tramon Williams a candidate to restructure his contract this offseason.

Williams, 31, is currently scheduled to earn $7.5 million next season. He could be asked to convert his salary into a signing bonus with the Packers facing cap issues in 2014. Williams graded out as the No. 39 corner by Pro Football Focus and is entering the final year of his contract.

ESPN Packers blogger Rob Demovsky believes CB Tramon Williams' 2014 roster spot could be in jeopardy.

Williams will turn 31 in March and is scheduled to earn $7.5 million next season, the final year of his contract. GM Ted Thompson typically likes to cut players above 30 who make that much money. However, Williams is having a fine season. He's graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 15 corner, excelling against the run. The Packers need to be adding quality DBs, not getting rid of them.

"I think so," Williams said. "I thought I'd be playing now. But I think so." The 30-year-old has been out for the past two-plus weeks with a bone bruise on his knee, and he just needs rest. Fifth-round rookie Micah Hyde and Sam Shields have been taking the first-team reps opposite Casey Hayward in Williams' absence.

The nerve damage in Packers CB Tramon Williams' shoulder has "dramatically healed" after an offseason of yoga, jump-rope, and weightlifting.

Williams' 2013 goal is to replace Charles Woodson in the secondary leadership role. To be taken seriously by teammates, he's going to have to keep his starting job -- a position the Packers opened to competition. Getting the shoulder right is a good first step. Williams has been a disappointment the past two years.

Packers CB Tramon Williams says his shoulder is "better."

"Trust me. It's better than last year. But last year I was good," Williams said Tuesday. "The structure was good. But when it comes to nerves, it's time. And there's nothing at all you can do about it. It's time. Time passes and it gets better, so I'm better." Williams made waves in a March radio interview when he said the shoulder was a hindrance in 2012, but he now claims he was talking about 2011. The Packers haven't guaranteed Williams a starting job for 2013. Casey Hayward and Sam Shields were both better last season.

Packers CB Tramon Williams says the shoulder injury that he suffered in Week 1 of 2011 still hasn't fully healed.

"I had some tears in my shoulder and I had nerve damage in my shoulder, and it was tough," Williams said. "I only missed one game because of it, but it should have been one of those things to where I should have sat down for quite a few games. ... I'm still working on it and hopefully it comes all the way back this year." Williams hasn't been the same player since the end of the 2010 season, and this may explain why. He hasn't been guaranteed a starting spot for 2013.

Packers CBs coach Joe Whitt stopped short of guaranteeing Tramon Williams would start in 2013 after Green Bay's playoff loss.

"I wouldn't say (Williams) is on the downside, I would say that Sam (Shields) has picked up his level of play, Casey (Hayward) ... played better than I expected him to play," Whitt said. "So the competition in the room has gotten better, and so that's the case. I think Tramon, he graded out pretty well in most games. He covered pretty good. Just the competition in the room has improved."
