    I see some other DEs d-linemen around the league they look lean or shredded or masses of muscle.

    Williams looks flabby to me soft around the midsection. Start of the third quarter today he has his hands on his hips trying to catch his breath.

    I'm singling him out because as a former top five pick I expect more much much more. The Jets need for this guy to live up to his draft status.he

    Picking that high a team hopes to get a dominator, a game changer HOF type defensive player.

    I understand he's obe of the faces of the franchise but h e's in line for a new contract soon.

    If things don't improve the Jets shouldn't break the bank on him. If he doesn't improve and the Jets still pay him a ton of money it'll show me all they care about is having a 'face'/culture of mediocrity.

    He’s probably better suited for a true 4-3 scheme, but becaue he’s in a 3-4 scheme he’s responsible for taking on linemen and allowing LB to make plays. Maybe he felt the need to get bigger so he can be more effective and not be easily moved by offensive linemen.

    Just a thought.

    I'm not sure what people expect from Williams. In this scheme his job is to take on double-teams so the LBs and safeties can get into the backfield. That's exactly what he does. He's not going to rack up big sack numbers but his presence allows others to get them.

    I wouldn't break the bank for a player like that.

    Blame the scheme, coaches or whatever this dude doesn't look like he's in peak physical condition to me.

    To his credit...i believe he is an excellent run defender...but the big money guys play the run and sack the qb.

    I think he has a girlfriend. I could be wrong though.

    You might have an opening there.....

    All we had to do was score 15 more points and threads like this wouldn’t even exist. I’m more upset about that than anything.

    You spend too much time on Instagram watching people who starve themselves a couple days before a photo shoot telling you what’s healthy.

    You can spend 5 days a week in the gym and not get “shredded” if you eating right. Williams is not the type of athlete who needs his weight as low as possible and in fact as a 5T it would be against what his job is.

    If this thread is not just dumbass trolling it’s dangerous to those with body issues.

    Are you his agent?

    Instead of getting easily offended about me stating the obvious consider that this guy is in year 4 now and has yet to live up to the expectations he had coming in as a top five pick.

    Perhaps not being in peak physical condition is a big fat (LOL) reason why.

    Not only that but he has a new contract coming up which is a major decision for this franchise.
