The offseason is an important time for NFL players, especially those who are still looking to make a major impact on the league.
Former Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams is surely one of those players.
Following a bit of a quiet rookie season where Williams brought in 28 tackles, four tackles for loss, six quarterback hits and 2.5 sacks, he is using the offseason to refine his body in hopes to become a major impact player for the New York Jets this upcoming season.
And for Williams that means no more Oreos.
“I’ve really been declining my body fat and gaining muscle, so thats what we really focus on so I can come back leaner and better so… no more Oreos,” said Williams when speaking to WBRC . “No more Oreos, none of that unhealthy stuff.”

Williams was known as a high motor, high production player during his time at the University of Alabama.
In essentially just true season of actually seeing playing time, Williams dominated opposing offenses with his play with Alabama offensive tackle and teammate Jonah Williams calling his a “300 pound bar of soap.”
It was these kind of measurable and style of play which warranted the Jets to take him with the third overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
And if he was a dominant force before his body transformation, then the sky is the limit if he gets into even better shape.
