Morning Buzz: Are the Packers most improved in the North?
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Ryan Wood’s look at Tramon Williams coming back to the Packers to handle some unfinished business. Namely, helping the Packers get to the Super Bowl.
It has been more than three years since that overtime drive, that touchdown catch. Williams has played for two other teams since then, but his last snap with the Green Bay Packers stays with him. In the 2014 NFC Championship game, Kearse beat Williams inside to catch Wilson’s game-winning touchdown pass, sending the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl, and the Packers to arguably their most crushing defeat ever.
Now that he’s back, returning to that precipice has weighed on Williams’ mind.
“It’s one of the things that I do talk about,” Williams said this spring. “… Green and gold runs through my blood. To walk off the field on my last play as a Packer getting scored on to go to the Super Bowl, it was a tough way to end it. But God puts you in different situations. I ended up leaving, and there was a reason why I left – for me to grow.
“I feel over these last three years, I’ve grown so much more than I would’ve probably ever done while I was here. Now, it’s time for me to come back here and get things in order. I’m up for that challenge. I believe that we will be back in the Big Dance when it’s all said and done.”
