Big plans: Former LSU CB Greedy Williams says he wants to be a Hall of Famer
Cleveland Browns CB Greedy Williams was a second-round pick out of LSU in the 2019 NFL Draft, but he’s not letting his draft position get him down.
Considered by many to be a first-round talent, Williams is eager to get going on his NFL career, and he has some lofty goals.
After touring the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Tuesday, Williams said he plans to be enshrined there someday (via Cleveland.com):
“It was great,’’ Williams said during a youth clinic conducted by the Browns rookies at the Browns’ facility. “I’m just ready to get this season going and try to work towards being a Hall of Famer because that’s one of my long term goals is to be a Hall of Famer.
“I remember my first game, caught an interception and I said, when I get to the NFL level, I want to be a Hall of Famer. My job isn’t finished until I have a gold jacket. It’s just one of those things me and my stepdad just sit down and talk about.’’
Most players enter their NFL careers with the goal of making it to Canton — if you don’t want to be the best, why even step on the field?
Williams, however, has the lockdown corner skills that could give him a realistic shot of earning the gold jacket. It all starts this fall, though, so stay tuned to see how he fares as a rookie.
