Jameson Williams, a former University of Alabama wide receiver, made an impressive play in Wednesday’s OTA session for the Detroit Lions. He recorded a toe-tap reception from quarterback Jared Goff. Williams kept both feet inbounds, displaying sound concentration on the football. Dan Campbell, the head coach of the Lions, stated Williams is ‘miles ahead’ now of where he was last season. He is gaining a connection with Goff and looks to be an explosive playmaker upon his return from suspension.

Williams will miss six games of the regular season because of violating the NFL’s gambling policy.

He mentioned how the punishment caught him by surprise, but he is not fighting it. Williams needed one season (2021) with the Crimson Tide to develop into a first-round pick. He collected 79 receptions for a team-high 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Williams was the big-play threat for Bryce Young, helping the former five-star become the first quarterback in school history to win the Heisman Trophy. He also assisted the Tide to a Southeastern Conference Championship and a berth in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in the 2021 season. Alabama fans are looking forward to seeing what Williams does in the fall.
