With addition of Fairley, don't forget about Corey Williams
With all the giddiness about DT Nick Fairley joining the Lions’ defensive line and playing with Ndamukong Suh, often one name gets left out. Defensive tackle Corey Williams, who the Lions acquired in a trade last offseason, had one heck of a season in 2010.
His numbers weren’t as gaudy as those of Suh -- Williams had 37 tackles, a pair of sacks and an interception. But he was solid and played in all 16 games.
Coach Jim Schwartz said he will rotate the three on and off the field. With Suh, Fairley and Williams, opponents’ offenses will never get a break. All three will be fresh all game. Sammie Hill might get in the mix a little too.
The 30-year-old Williams will be playing in his eighth NFL season, whenever that may start.
