Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams is getting ready for the big matchup with the Detroit Lions, and this guy they call Megatron. Perhaps you've heard of him. But make way for more silliness, as Williams has boasted that he's the real 'Optimus Prime', weeks after Seattle CB Richard Sherman gave himself the name. “I’m definitely Optimus Prime,” Williams told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I’m the leader of the Autobots. I’m the leader of the young guys right now and when it comes down to the tough battles, I’ll lead those guys out there.” How original. Perhaps maybe he can go with another Transformer, like Bumble Bee? Williams elaborates - “Guys like Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman – they talk about how physical they are – but Calvin was pushing those guys around the field like it was nothing,” he said. “And those are some big guys. You definitely have to be careful with how you play a big guy like that.” After this game, Detroit plays the Houston Texans. Maybe CB Kareem Jackson can continue the trend and label himself 'the real real Optimus Prime"?
