Packers could be about to bring back Tramon Williams
Tramon Williams could be set to make another Super Bowl run with the Green Bay Packers.
A Pro Bowler and Super Bowl winner with the Packers back in 2010, Williams could be on his way back to Green Bay.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Williams is visiting with the Packers after he was released by the Baltimore Ravens.
This would certainly be an interesting signing. Williams only played six games for the Ravens this season but had an impressive 2019 with the Packers, making it somewhat surprising he wasn’t re-signed to a one-year deal.
Williams would add some more depth to the secondary, while also giving the team another experienced player who knows what it takes to win the big games.
And don’t forget, Williams also has some experience on returns. The Packers’ return game hasn’t been great this season, so maybe Matt LaFleur would ask Williams to return punts. He most recently had that job with the Packers in 2018 when he returned 12 punts for 83 yards. But he hasn’t returned kickoffs since the 2009 season.
Williams initially spent eight seasons with Green Bay after being signed in 2006. After a great career including a Super Bowl win, Williams wasn’t re-signed and he went onto sign with the Cleveland Browns.
He would spend two seasons with the Browns and one with the Arizona Cardinals before re-signing with Green Bay in 2018. Williams put together two more good seasons, helping the team reach the NFC Championship Game last year.
If Williams is re-signed and is able to play this weekend, he would return to the spot he last played with the Packers, an NFC title game with a shot at the Super Bowl.
In terms of adjusting, this would be no concern. Williams is as experienced as they come and he knows this defense, this team, and played will the majority of the roster last year.
