For Bills second-round pick Aaron Williams, the preseason opener in Chicago was about as good a learning experience as he could’ve had. He experienced the valley and peak a player’s first NFL season can bring all in the span of four plays.
Late in the third quarter, Williams was flagged for pass interference while covering Bears rookie WR Dane Sanzenbacher. The 24-yard penalty set Chicago up 1st-and-10 at the Bills 15-yard line. Three plays later Williams redeemed himself in a big way. On 3rd-and-5 from the Bills 10-yard line, Williams while covering Kris Adams, saw the pass coming his way, tipped it in the air and then leaped, twisted and pulled the ball in for his first interception thwarting a scoring threat.
“That was a great play,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “I think he’ll learn a lot from this just like all those rookies will learn a lot form this. They saw the speed of the game and it’ll be a learning curve that will just keep getting better and better I hope.”
