ARLINGTON, Texas — Cornerback Tramon Williams began his NFL career in 2006 as an undrafted free agent who was released by the Houston Texans, leaving his football career in limbo. He later latched onto the Packers’ practice squad and worked his way up the depth chart. He’s now just a game away from winning a Super Bowl ring.

Sporting News’ Matt Hayes and other reporters talked with Williams on Tuesday about his strange

After being cut by the Houston Texans, Tramon Williams says he was going to do whatever it took to not experience that feeling again.

Q: How did that happen in Houston?

A: I feel like I put together a quality training camp in Houston and things just didn’t go my way. I know I didn’t like the feeling of being cut, so that’s what I took from it. I went into Green Bay with a fearless attitude, and if I didn’t make the team for one reason or another, I knew I did everything I possibly could.

Q: Did Green Bay see something in you others didn’t?

A: They just know talent. It’s kind of mind-boggling when you look at it. But in the NFL, you never know what adversity you’re going to face. I know a lot times in this league you run into a numbers game and you can’t blame the team. They did what they thought was right for the team.

Q: What’s it like playing opposite seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Woodson?

A: Anytime you’re surrounded by a caliber player like Charles, you have no choice but to step up your game because they’re not going to his side that much. The guy next to him definitely has to know what’s going on out there. He has done a great job with me as far as film study and other things on and off the field. He has definitely been part of my progress in Green Bay. More >
