The Jets traded former first round pick Leonard Williams across town to the New York Giants and Williams is now ready to face his former team this weekend.
Williams was asked about hitting his former quarterback and his quote is great, because in practice the defensive players are not able to tackle their quarterbacks and now he will be able to unload on Sam Darnold, if he gets the chance.
“That’s funny because I randomly thought in my head, what if I beat somebody and go to tackle Sam and I let up because I can’t hit him,” Williams said when he was asked about potentially sacking his former quarterback, via the NY Daily News. “But no, that won’t happen, though. I’ll finally get to tackle him, that’s going to be fun. It’s going to be great.”
“I mean I’m obviously excited to play against the team that I once played for and that traded me to this team now,” Williams said on Thursday. “There’s no extra motivation than last week. I’m still with this team, I still want to win every game like I would every week. The motivation level is still the same.”
I have a feeling that Leonard Williams will get a sack this week, what do you think? Added fuel for trading him?
