'Monster' Williams Receives Praise at Pro Bowl

Jets Team MVP Represented the AFC in Orlando


Jets Team MVP Leonard Williams had his first exposure to life as a Pro Bowler last week.

Williams tried to absorb as much as he could and the 22-year-old received praise by media members and fellow Pro Bowlers.

"He's a monster," Bengals DT Geno Atkins said. "He's relentless. He's got it all — you can put him outside or inside. He's very versatile. He was able to turn that corner and get better and better. I think he's going to be one of the best D-ends/D-tackles in the league."

Williams was part of an AFC defensive line that combined for 13 Pro Bowls prior to 2016 and he tried to pick up a few tips while enjoying the late January sun in Central Florida. And since the AFC topped the NFC 20-13 in the actual game, Williams took home a reported $61,000 check as member of the winning team.

"It's year two and it feels great to be here already. I feel like I put a lot of hard work in and I'm just really grateful to be here," he said.
