Could Packers bring back veteran CB Tramon Williams?

January 12, 2018

Hiring Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator has opened up an intriguing possibility for the Green Bay Packers.

Could they team bring back veteran cornerback Tramon Williams, who played for Pettine in Cleveland in 2015 and is now coming off a strong year in Arizona?

Williams provided a glowing review of Pettine and his defense to Bill Huber of Packer Report.

“Really great guy, not only as a coach but a great guy in general,” Williams said. “As a coach, man, very, very smart. Very smart and articulate. Obviously, his resume shows over the years that he’s done a good job as a defensive coordinator.”

Williams played in Green Bay from 2006-14. He won a Super Bowl and made the Pro Bowl while developing into a top cornerback opposite Charles Woodson and Sam Shields.

Pettine and the Browns lured him away from Green Bay in 2015. He spent two years in Cleveland before latching on in Arizona this past season. It was a year of revival for Williams, who finished with two interceptions and 12 passes defended over 13 games and nine starts. Pro Football Focus graded him as the best player on Arizona’s roster in 2017.

Williams will turn 35 in March, making him ancient in cornerback years. But his performance in Arizona this past season suggests he still has something left in the tank, and Pettine and the Packers could use a veteran cornerback with knowledge of the system. Williams signed a one-year deal in Arizona and will soon be a free agent.
