Quinnen Williams enters his third NFL season in the fall, but he won’t be doing it alone.

The former Alabama defensive lineman is officially married. His wife, Maranda, shared photos to Twitter of her and Williams tying the knot. She captioned the photos: “I don’t need to read fairytales when I am living one. I’m out of the game — we are married!!! Williams responded with the caption: Mr. & Mrs. Williams.

The 23-year-old has the woman he has always wanted.

According to ESPN’s Rich Cimini, the third-year pro for the New York Jets will miss eight to ten weeks with a fractured foot.

Williams sustained the injury during a workout at the team’s facility and it will require surgery.

He will miss OTAs and minicamp; however, Williams will be ready for training camp.

The 6-foot-3, 303-pounder had a breakout season in 2020, leading the team in sacks (seven) and tackles for loss (13.5). He loves his new head coach, Robert Saleh, and is ready to get to work.

Before he was selected at No. 3 overall in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Williams was a Unanimous First-Team All-American, Outland Trophy winner, and first-team All-SEC selection at Alabama in 2018. He recorded a team-high eight sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss that year.

The Birmingham (Ala.) native also had 12 quarterback pressures and helped the Crimson Tide capture a Southeastern Conference title.
