Thank you, Tramon Williams. A Green Bay Packers legend, Williams is retiring.

A Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion with the Packers, Williams has had an incredible career in the NFL that began as an undrafted free agent back in 2006.

Williams seemed to make it clear on Twitter that his playing career has come to an end.

Williams also tweeted his thanks to the Green Bay Packers.

And if there was any doubt, Josina Anderson reported that she received a text message from Williams, simply saying: “I’m retiring.”

Well, what an incredible career Williams has had.

Williams had three different runs with the Packers.

The first was his longest and most memorable, an eight-year stretch that included making some huge plays in the Packers’ magical Super Bowl run. In four playoff games in 2010, Williams had three interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

Williams moved on following the 2014 season, spending two seasons with the Cleveland Browns and one with the Arizona Cardinals before returning home to Green Bay. With two more seasons with the Packers, Williams again proved he still had a ton of talent whether lining up in the slot or even at safety.

In 2020, Williams played six games for the Baltimore Ravens but after he was waived, the Packers signed him back to their practice squad, which was an option due to the Covid-19 practice squad rules.

Williams was active in the NFC Championship Game although he didn’t play. Despite that, bringing in a player with his experience and leadership ahead of a key playoff game made a ton of sense. And it was fitting that he got to finish his career in Green Bay.

And with his great career coming to an end, there is only one thing left for me, and the rest of Packer Nation, to say:

Thank you, Tramon Williams.
