About Tramon

Tramon Williams, was born on March 16, 1983 in Houma, Louisiana.

Tramon attended High School at Assumption High in Napoleonville, Louisiana and college at Louisiana Tech where he led the nation with 19 passes defended in 2005 as a senior.

In 2007, Tramon scored his first NFL touchdown on a 94-yard punt return vs. Carolina on Nov. 18.

Tramon continues to distinguish his career with his interceptions and his high level of Corner Back play. Tramon is the only non-drafted free agent in the NFL to post four or more interceptions each in the 2007 and 2008 seasons and his five interceptions in 2008 were his most in any single season, college or pro.

In 2009, Williams became the first player in franchise history to post a 65-yard interception return (67 vs. Chicago, Sept. 13) and a 45-yard punt return (45 vs. Detroit, Oct. 18) in the same season.

Tramon made an enormous impact during the 2010 season. In the Packers’ second playoff game in Atlanta against the Atlanta Falcons, Williams had two interceptions in the first half. The first of these was a touchdown-saving interception in the Packers’ own end-zone, the second was an interception just before halftime which Williams returned 70 yards for a touchdown (the first interception return for a touchdown in his career) which helped the Packers secure the victory and led the team to the NFC championship against the Chicago Bears. Tramons excellent coverage and defensive play helped the Green Bay Packers earn their place as NFC Champions and 2010 Super Bowl Champions.

Suffered a shoulder injury in the 2011 season opener, but managed to still start 15 games and post career highs for tackles (65) and passes defensed (24). Also added four interceptions, including the first TD return of his career in Week 9 at San Diego.

His 15 INTs and 258 return yards since the start of 2010 (including playoffs) rank No. 1 in the NFL.

2012 SEASON: A constant in the defensive backfield, he was the lone CB to start every game in 2012, almost always drawing the most difficult coverage assignment…Finished the season with 61 tackles (51 solo), two INTs and a career-high-tying 24 passes defensed (No. 2 on the team)…Helped contribute to a pass defense that made an 81-yard per game improvement from 2011 (218.3 ypg.) and climbed to No. 11 in the league rankings by season’s end…Defense also finished with the NFL’s fourth-lowest opponent passer rating (76.8)…Vs. Chicago (Sept. 13): Delivered an excellent performance against the rival Bears, tallying four tackles (all solo), two INTs and two passes defensed. Found himself matched against standout WR Brandon Marshall for much of the game and was part of an effort that helped limit him to just two catches for 24 yards (12.0 avg.). Marked the second regular-season multi-INT game of his career (also Week 11 of 2011 vs. Tampa Bay). First INT came when he undercut a crossing route intended for WR Earl Bennett. Second INT came in the fourth quarter when he leapt to tip a deep pass to himself before scampering 38 yards down the sideline on the return. The offense wasted little time taking advantage, as QB Aaron Rodgers hit WR Donald Driver for a 26-yard TD on the ensuing play to put the game out of reach at 23-3…At Indianapolis (Oct. 5): Appeared on all 96 defensive plays, posting six tackles (all solo, one for loss) and was credited with a career-high five passes defensed. Passes defensed were the most by a Packer since Woodson was credited with six at Minnesota on Oct. 23, 2011…At Chicago (Dec. 16): Fared well in a much-anticipated matchup with the Bears’ Marshall. The secondary held Marshall to just five catches for 56 yards (9.3 avg.), well below his season averages, and just one of those receptions (a 9-yard catch in the first quarter) came against Williams. Part of a pass defense that limited the Bears to just 107 net passing yards and a combined 181 net passing yards in the teams’ two contests, the lowest in a season for Green Bay against Chicago since 1977 (158 yards)…Vs. Minnesota (NFC Wild Card, Jan. 5): Appeared on all 62 defensive plays, finishing with a team-high-tying seven tackles (four solo) and a team-best three passes defensed.

2013 SEASON:Tramon started all 16 games for the second consecutive season in 2013, extending his streak to 50 straight starts, dating back to Week 3 of the 2011 season.

He recaptured his difference-making form in the second half of 2013, finishing the season with new career highs in tackles (91), solo tackles (68) and sacks (2½), in addition to three INTs and 14 passes defensed, and a career-high-tying two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

    I’m a big Packer fan, always have been and I particularly like watching the corner position. Al Harris was my favorite player on the team for a while, and when you came in for him I immediately liked your play. Your story is rad and I’m proud that you’re a Packer. I’ve been trying to get a #38 T. Will jersey for a long time now, but they don’t carry them at the Packer’s Pro Shop, which is ridicules. They have to get your jersey there so you can start cashing in, I refuse to make a custom one because you wont get anything from it. Pack nation is happy you’re here! Go Pack.

    Tramon you are the man. I’ve been the biggest packers fan my entire life, I check my app on my phone everyday to see the new news on the pack. I’m from montana and I sure hope there is a season this year because I’ve made it my goal to be at the opening game this year vs. The saints. (Never been to a professional game of any sort in my life). But hopefully one day I will make it to a game to see you tear it up and hopefully maybe meet you and toss the rock around with you! Best of luck to you all this season tramon!!!

    Hello, Tramon, it’s been a minute or two. I can’t express how proud I am of you and Brandon for taking your dreams all the way. The hard work has resulted in Super Bowl rings for the both of you. I attended the Mustangs playoff game this past Friday, watched them kick butt. Couldn’t help but remind me of our team in 2001. We’ve all grown older with families of our own, but I am proud to show my children my professional football player friends on tv. Keep doing what you do!!! P.S. if you’re ever in the area, I’d love to get your autograph. All the way from Pierre Part, Louisiana, Bessie Marie Dennis :)

    The Truth!!! That’s what they call him. He’s the best cornerback in the league. His form tackling is a thing of beauty and a breath of fresh air in an NFL that greatly lacks tackling technique. Most definitely a shut-down corner. Who is this elite athlete? The one and only TRAMON WILLIAMS!!!!!!!
