It has been a roller coaster of emotions and a wave of nostalgia for Green Bay Packer fans today. The passing of former general manager Ted Thompson was a shocking, devastating announcement to many. Fans everywhere took a trip down memory lane to remember all of the greats he drafted. One of the players Thompson signed found his way back to “Titletown” on Thursday, as Tramon Williams was signed to the Packers practice squad.
Tramon Williams Re-Joins Packers
In order to make room for Tramon Williams on the Packers practice squad, the team released punter Ryan Winslow. The move also resulted in running back Mike Weber changing his jersey to No. 40, so Williams could again wear No. 38 for Green Bay.
Williams has played in 205 games, with 153 starts, during his 14 NFL seasons. He has totaled 728 tackles (565 solo), 34 interceptions (No. 2 among active NFL players), 4.5 sacks, 185 passes defensed, six forced fumbles, 11 fumble recoveries and 28 special teams tackles.
He also appeared in 16 postseason contests with 11 starts, registering four interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown, and 18 passes defensed. The 2010 Pro Bowler returns to the Packers (2007-14, 2018-19) after spending this season with the Baltimore Ravens, where he appeared in six games during the regular season and one postseason contest.
While it remains unknown if Williams will be active for the Buccaneers vs Packers NFC Championship, it sure would be nice to get the long-time Packer another ring.
