Jameson Williams Suspended Until Week 7, Backed By Coach

If Jameson Williams can resolve his off-field issues there’s a good player in there, according to Antwaan Randle El.

The Detroit Lions’ wide receivers coach is helping Jameson Williams prepare for the start of his delayed NFL career.

His rookie year was mostly a write off due to an ACL tear, but the Lions drafted him No.12 overall anyway. They probably weren’t counting on him missing the first 6 games of 2023 as well. That’s how long Jameson Williams will have to wait to play following his recent NFL suspension for gambling.

Randle El says having a solid offseason will aid Williams once he’s eligible again.

“I don’t have to motivate him much when it comes to ball. He loves the game and wants to be better and works at it,” Randle El said. 

“But the encouragement part, with all that’s going on … it’s just, ‘Hey, keep doing what you’re doing; stay at it, in terms of working hard. This is just another stumbling block that, again, you’ll come out stronger on the other side.’

“Those types of things, just encouraging him from that standpoint. He gets it, he understands it, and it will be (good) for him once we do get back and get going, as it relates into the season and the preseason.”

“It’s just a matter of him being on the field over and over again. Man, that’s part of having that offseason, and that’s why you always want a young guy to have the offseason to just be able to get ready for the season,” Randle El said. 

“Training camp is coming up. Again, another opportunity on the field, being with the quarterbacks, hearing the calls, all those different things that need to take place over and over again. You can see he’s getting it.”
