Tramon Williams thanks Cleveland Browns in retirement tweet
Former Cleveland Browns CB Tramon Williams announces his retirement
Former Cleveland Browns cornerback, Tramon Williams, announced his retirement through a series of tweets on Tuesday.
In the one directed at the Browns, he thanked the organization while also shouting out his wife for her support.
Williams only played for the Browns for two years but stated that “it was there that I found my true purpose in this world.”
He played with the organization during the 2015 and 2016 NFL seasons. In his two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, Williams appeared in 27 games, 22 of which were starts, and tallied 105 total tackles, 15 pass breakups, a pair of interceptions, and a fumble recovery.
His tenure in Cleveland ended in a mess as he requested to be released by the team, citing the lack of stability in the front office and coaching staff (thank goodness those days are behind us). He had played under two different head coaches, Mike Pettine and Hue Jackson, and two different defensive coordinators, Jim O’Neil and Ray Horton, in his time as a member of the Browns. The team went 4-28 in his tenure.
The 2010 Pro Bowler spent 10 of his 14 seasons with the Green Bay Packers and is most well known as a member of the team that won Super Bowl XLV. After his time in Cleveland, he had short stints with the Arizona Cardinals in 2017 and most recently with the Baltimore Ravens in 2020. Williams appeared in 16 playoff games, all but one of them coming as a member of the Green Bay Packers.
He finishes his career with 719 total tackles, 153 pass breakups, 34 interceptions, 14 tackles for loss, 6 forced fumbles, 4.5 sacks, a defensive touchdown, and a kick return touchdown.
