Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has been steadily climbing up the ranks, he a young up and coming impact defensive back. The departure of safety Charles Woodson left a void in leadership and Williams wants to fill that gap. Sam shields, the team’s best defensive back isn’t at offseason training activities, he hasn’t signed his restricted free agent tender and the Packers are in the dark about his return. Williams on the other hand is working hard at his craft, and helping the younger players how to prepare in the NFL. He’s embracing the role of becoming a leader, teaching while practicing, mentoring when needed. "I know the guys are going to look to me for guidance and I will embrace that role," Williams said, via Tyler Dunne of JSOline.com. "I will be the leader of these guys." "We know that when Charles was here, he had that role," Williams said. "He was the leader of this group. He taught us things. And I'm going to keep that alive — I'm going to keep that alive. I'm going to come out and do the same thing. The younger guys usually come to me for things anyway. So whatever they need, I'm going to try to get those guys up to speed to play." "We've tasted it once [on winning a Super Bowl]," Williams said. "A lot of people say that once you've tasted it, you have to try to find that hunger to get back to it. I don't think you really do, me personally. I feel that anytime you step onto the field, you want to put your best foot forward." "At the end of the day, you live with it because you know you've done everything possible that you can."
