Sherman Williams was an All-SEC running back who helped Alabama win a national championship, and the Cowboys chose him in the second round of the 1995 NFL draft. But things didn’t go according to plan from there.
Williams was a disappointment in the NFL, never gaining even 500 yards in a season, and after the Cowboys cut him he was convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana and passing counterfeit currency, and he spent 14 years in prison.

Williams spent 2015 in Cleveland with Pettine, and Williams spent 2017 with Arizona. He has since returned to the Packers. And now the question is whether the Packers will return to greatness with a new defense.
