The Jacksonville Flordia native earned his Blackshirt over the off-season and now just wants to get on the field. The 6'1, 205-pound Williams showed a nose for football last season intercepting two passes and causing a pair of fumbles. In the season Williams played in all but one of the 12 games.

"I'm a free bird, I know everything, I know the system, give it all my effort and just play hard, play like I want to play, this year" Williams said. "I can play like I want to play instead of playing like a robot because I really didn't know what I was doing so this year, I'm free. I might throw the bones, I might not, cause me, I'm more silent when I play. I just keep playing and go to the next play."
