Jesse Williams will never stop being a source of great PR for Alabama.
According to Williams, that’s not the only way the Seattle Seahawks are trailing Alabama.
As reported by the News Tribune, the 6-foot-3, 312 pound defensive tackle spent all of last season on injured reserve after being taken by the Seahawks in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Now after going through a rookie minicamp, Williams is ready to finally make his way onto the field.
“Feeling really good to get back out there,” Williams told the Tribune.
Williams came back to Seattle at the end of last season to continue his rehab. He says that he had no trouble learning the playbook, and says his college career is the main reason.
“It’s a lot simpler than playing at Alabama was,” Williams said.
Williams also has been spending some time at the Capstone during his rehab. On Monday he posted this video to his Instagram account. On Twitter he called the Alabama facilities “Jesse’s weightroom.”
Williams isn’t the first former Tide player to say that playing for Alabama made for an easier transition to the pros, but he’s probably the most colorful.
Never change, Monstar.
