    I ran across this story about Billy Winn. I always appreciate learning more about the players. All I knew what that we signed him and then he tipped a pass from Brees. The rest is much more interesting: https://apnews.com/article/nfl-lupus-billy-winn-green-bay-football-26c82e50c5a9bba75cceec41638fa937

    Also - there is a video on the Packers website of Jamal Williams on the NFL Network show from earlier this week. It was pretty entertaining: https://www.packers.com/video/jamaal-williams-shows-off-personality-on-gmfb

    I like stories like that (Billy Winn) I am sure there are a lot of them out there for every team but we never hear them. Lots of people push through adversity and work hard to make comebacks in football and in life but when someone acknowledges that even though it was hard someone else has it worse and is sincere about it it does make you feel good. His comment about my worst days are normal days for her...this man understands adversity.

    I never knew that much about Williams either and I'm glad you posted that link. It would be easy to see him out there dancing around and get the wrong idea. The idea that he is an attention seeker and what not rather than a young man who is just doing what he loves to do. I loved it when he said something to the effect of you can't take your own helmet off so when it gets knocked off I'm going to take advantage of it.

    Williams seems to be like a great guy. I enjoyed hearing him talk about his relationship with Aaron Jones. It will be tough that one of them will likely not be here next season.
