The 28-year-old’s set a new goal for himself on the field after emerging as one of the NFL’s most dominant run-stoppers.
“I need to get my sacks up,” Williams said to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. “I need to get my pass-rushing up. I am excited. I just had a meeting with our D-line coach, Coach (Joe) Cullen yesterday, about me kind of fine-tuning. I have the run-stop. I could still work on it, obviously, but I’m more just trying to work on my pass rush, trying to get out there and do the best I can.”
Last season, Williams recorded 51 tackles and a sack, numbers that belie his true impact on the field.
Now he’s looking to become an all-around threat as the Ravens seek to snap a two-year postseason hiatus.
“People say, ‘Oh you got a contract, and now you can kind of relax.’ There is no relaxing,” Williams said. “It is actually that you got the contract, so now you have to earn your keep. So now you have to push the gas a little bit harder and kind of get as much as you can out of yourself to show people, ‘Hey, I earned this.'”
