Eagles choose Bishop over Williams

<P>Giants free agent safety <STRONG>Shaun Williams </STRONG>was all set to visit New York's division rival, the Eagles. That was until the Birds opted to sign Blaine Bishop and cancelled Williams' visit in the process.

It's been surprising that Williams, New York's first-round pick in 1998, has yet to have any official visits. Apparently he and his agents have decided against touring around the country and will only visit teams that seem to have serious interest. Williams traveled to Tennessee but didn't offically work out. Williams is still expected to meet and work out with the Titans, who appear to be the front-runners for his services.

The Giants are hopeful they can retain him for less than the $4-5 million per year he is seeking. Giants GM Ernie Accorsi is planning to meet with Williams' representative, Marvin Demoff, early next week at the NFL meetings.

WR Joe Jurevicius, who already worked out for the Broncos, is scheduled to meet with the Rams in the near future as well. He also had a visit cancelled when the Patriots inked receiver Donald Hayes.

Elsewhere in free agent news, K Morten Andersen is set to work out for the Kansas City Chiefs and CB Emmanuel McDaniel is close to coming to terms with former defensive coordinator John Fox in Carolina.
