Bills CB Aaron Williams has been more apt to voice his feelings along with his play as he enters year two of his NFL career, and there’s a reason for it.
“Like I always say that first year you want to listen more than you talk,” said Williams. “When you get used to everybody’s personality and the chemistry of the team the talk starts to come out especially in minicamp and training camp too. It’s all just competing and grinding and getting each other better. The trash talking is just keeping the confidence up. Even when there’s a bad play I’m not going to let you know that you had me on that play. I’m going to keep going.”
One of the offensive players that makes sure he dishes right back to Williams is his fellow native Texan Fred Jackson, who is often the “spokesperson” for the offense during practice. He was warning Williams that they were targeting him frequently.
“We’re coming to you all day,” said Jackson after Williams likely committed a pass interference penalty on a pass to the end zone intended for Derek Hagan.
But Williams turned in three pass breakups on the day and more than held his own.
“Fred is the biggest kid I know whether he’s 30 or 29, but he keeps me humble and keeps me level-headed. He’s my older brother in the locker room always beating me up,” said Williams. “But he has my back. He took me under his wing when I got here so I’m really blessed to have him.”
Williams is just hoping his performance in training camp can convince the coaching staff that he deserves one of the two starting outside cornerback jobs.
