Justin Williams, Caps aren't having 'in-depth discussions' with free agency looming

Capitals free agent forward Justin Williams told his agent he's "going dark" today because he's on the golf course, playing in the Quicken Loans Pro-Am at TPC Potomac. But Caps fans managed to find him anyway, asking for an autograph and making a plea to stay in Washington.

Williams, who will turn 36 in October, just completed the second of a two-year deal with Washington but said he's not sure where he'll end up next season.

"I really can't give a number on what percentage I'm here staying, what percentage I'm leaving," Williams said. "I'm not sure. We haven't had very in-depth discussions with Washington so far, so we'll see."

RELATED: What does the Copley deal mean for Grubauer?

Williams is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and is currently going through the league's interview process until that day.

"It's a very humbling process, people vying for your services, and you know, you just want to be wanted and it's an interesting time, but it will be all clear in the next few days."

Teammate John Carlson will be playing alongside Williams in the Pro-Am and added that he believes "enough teams will probably be in on him, so that's the first and foremost important thing, in terms of being able to be on a good team."

Don't expect any news today, though, Williams is focused on his golf game.
