Tramon Williams is retiring. Not surprising news at all, but it is sad nonetheless, given how long he has been with the organization. I'll always remember his clutch interceptions in 2010, especially the pick six off Ryan going into halftime. Thank you for being a classy player, your many years in Green Bay, and for helping us bring a title home.

Rookies!!! I gave up giving up anything for Lent decades ago ... So every Lenten season, I successfully complete my Lenten obligation.

This is what happens when you grow up in a strict Catholic household - you limit yourself to one half pound burger on Friday.

Yes, it's abstinence from abstaining.

Hey bud, you`ll appreciate this being a fellow catholic. One year my late wife and I spent Easter with my parents. Being a staunch catholic, I explained that on Good Friday we didn`t eat meat at all. My mum made us cheese and pickle sandwiches as I expected and then tucked into a ham sandwich herself....hahaha She did it completely innocently but nearly choked when we pointed out her actions. Three times we had to make sure she knew what she was doing. When we pointed out ham was meat, she nearly choked trying to spit it out :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:. It still makes me chuckle 20 years later.

So for lent, do you give up coffee for tea? Back on topic; Tramon Williams has been a joy to watch. One can't blame him for retiring. These guys take an unbelievable beating year after year and those of us who are "seasoned" understand the feeling of the body not being able to take the punishment we once gave it.

My big 2010 memory was the endzone interception to win the wildcard game against the Eagles. Tramon was a Grade A Packers player.

Pick 6 against the Falcons in 2010 is one of the best Packer moments ever

What makes Tramon's retirement especially sad for me is that the players from the 2010 team are now almost gone. Just Rodgers and Crosby remain on the team. And around the league, the only other active player I can think of is Bulaga.

Clark Harris is still active I believe unless he has announced his retirement. Not positive he was still on the Packers roster in 2010 though.

Edit: My bad. Re-read your post. “On the team”.

PS: Marshall Newhouseis still floating around yet too. He was on the 2010 team.

Actually about 30 years ago I made a new year's resolution to not give up anything for Lent. It worked so well I've been doing it ever since. No cheating, no guilt, no problem.

And Joe Buck for all the flak he gets did pretty good here. "They tried to bite off more yardage, and they just got burned!"

I`m a massive fan of Tramon Williams and I don`t usually do the hero worship of individuals. I can only wish him well for the future and thank him for all his service to the Packers.

Was really hoping he'd get a redeeming moment this past year after the final play vs Seattle in NFC Championship game, even though it really wasn't his fault, just perfect execution by the opponent. Also wish he didn't get that shoulder injury week 1 in 2011. He was a stud corner in 2010 and while he had his moments, that shoulder injury really limited his tackling ability from then on. Great career considering he was undrafted. Can't forget he had the clinching play of the Super Bowl!

We signed the guy this year and never played him! If he had played instead of King, we would have made the SB.

Most likely, Williams wouldn't have been able to make a difference in that game at that point in his career.
