The Green Bay Packers got a visit from an old friend, cornerback Tramon Williams, earlier this week. Williams, who was part of the Super Bowl XLV championship team, was released by the Baltimore Ravens and is free to sign with another team. The Packers appear interested.
According to The Packers Wire and several other sources, Williams was in Green Bay this week to discuss joining the team after the Ravens granted his release following their divisional round loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Baltimore signed Williams in mid-November to boost their own chances of making playoff push. After they were eliminated, many Packers fans took to social media asking the team and general manager Brian Gutekunst to make another savvy move by adding Williams, if he was released.
The Packers signed offensive lineman Jared Veldheer just days after his former team, the Indianapolis Colts, were eliminated from the postseason.
Williams would add a major veteran presence to the defensive backfield at a time when they can use it most. If added, he would be only the 3rd player on the current roster who was part of Super Bowl XLV nearly 10 years ago. He would join Aaron Rodgers and kicker Mason Crosby.
This is just another sign that the Packers are doing all they can to get to and win a Super Bowl this season.
