Browns’ Greedy Williams in a ‘humble stage’ as offseason workouts end
Cleveland Browns rookie cornerback Greedy Williams finds himself in a “humble stage” as offseason workouts come to an end.
Moments after the Browns drafted Williams in April, he predicted Cleveland is going to the Super Bowl. He hasn’t made any bold claims since then, per Cleveland.com’s Scott Patsko (via Pro Football Talk’s Josh Alper).
Williams has steered clear of predictions since then and turned his focus to acclimating himself to the team’s defense.
That process left him in a ‘humble stage’ as the offseason program ended with this week’s minicamp.
‘When you let a guy catch the ball on you a couple time’s it’s kind of frustrating. It’s kind of like I’m letting my defense down. So I was just fighting myself with it, you know, and try to be better the next day.’

Williams confirmed to Patsko on Thursday, “I’m still in my humble stage.”
He has made the Browns’ first-team defense, playing cornerback alongside Denzel Ward. Williams intercepted quarterback Baker Mayfield twice in practice on June 5, per Cleveland.com.
For his part, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens told Patsko that Williams “did a good job of pushing through that the whole time here.”
With the way things are going, it seems Greedy Williams has earned a starting cornerback spot for the Cleveland Browns in the 2019 NFL season. A humble version of Williams should exceed everybody’s expectations. No doubt about it.
