Jimmy Williams: Back in the League

by: Michael Steffes

Many of you should remember former Seahawk defensive back and punt returner Jimmy Williams. He was on the 2005 Superbowl team. He was also one of the DB's that fatefully went down in Tampa week 17 of the 06' season, leaving the Hawks looking for corners off the street. That was the last action he saw.... until now.

The Houston Texans have signed Willimas to help with their own shortage of DB's. The link is to a Mike Sando post at ESPN's Hashmarks. He makes the connection between Ray Rhodes and Jimmy Williams. More importantly though, he gives some insight into Williams time with the Hawks, saying..."The gregarious Williams was extremely popular in the Seattle locker room."

While Williams was with the Hawks, he had 38 punt returns and 4 kick returns for a total of 299 yards. He also had 2 interceptions in 2005. Good luck to you Jimmy. END
