The 6-foot-5, 312-pound Williams is still owed a guaranteed $12.6 million on his fifth-year option. Brown’s contract includes a $31 signing bonus, the most ever for an offensive lineman. Williams has started in 42 of the last 50 possible games during the last three seasons after sitting out his entire rookie campaign because of injury.
Williams was selected by the Bengals with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Williams was an unanimous All-American and captured the Jacobs Blocking Trophy in 2018. During Alabama’s national title season in 2017, Williams was a third-team All-American, and first-team All-SEC selection.

“Brown’s contract includes a $31 signing bonus, the most ever for an offensive lineman.”
Wow, a $31 signing bonus. Makes you wonder what the previous record was. $29.99?
If Jonah Williams was high school recruit now, he’d sign with Georgia.
Cause Georgia is the happening place right now.
Hahahaha man you are so dumb, Doug. The infatuation you have coming to Alabama articles over and over shows how obsessed you are. I’m guessing you probably have a few restraining orders against you for how many girls you have stalked.
Any facts behind that fictitious statement?
