He is quickly winning people back over. 

Not even an arrest for criminal possession of a handgun on March 5 could keep Quinnen Williams out of good graces with others.

Despite the incident at LaGuardia Airport, the defensive lineman for the New York Jets gave a generous donation to medical professionals in the state of New Jersey who are dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a report from national NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Williams donated $25,000 worth of healthy meals to first responders. 

He had a strong rookie season with the Jets in 2019, totaling 28 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one fumble recovery through 13 games.

Williams was selected No. 3 overall in the NFL Draft and it came after an incredible season with the Crimson Tide.

As a native of Birmingham, Ala., he recorded 71 tackles, 19.5 stops for loss (team high), eight sacks and 12 quarterback hurries in 2018.

It was his lone year as a starter under Nick Saban, but Williams helped Alabama win a Southeastern Conference title and get to the College Football Playoff for a fifth straight time.
