Jameson Williams has Detroit Lions special teams coach dreaming

Jameson Williams is itching to get back on the football field and the Detroit Lions are itching to have him back out there!

In the 2022 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions traded all the way up to No. 12 to select special teams ace, Jameson Williams out of Alabama.

Wait, what?!?! Do you mean to tell me that the main reason why the Lions traded up to snag Williams had very little to do with his skills to dominate as a gunner or even as a return man!?!?

Of course, I am just messing around but Lions special teams coach Jett Modkins has been thinking about what Jameson Williams could do for his unit.

Detroit Lions coach is excited to see Jameson Williams on special teams

During the most recent episode of “Twentyman in the Huddle” with Lions writer Tim Twentyman, Modkins said he would love to see how Jameson Williams can add to the special teams unit.

“Once he gets back out there, we’ll probably throw little hints out there, try to get the keys to the car,” Modkins said, jokingly.

“(Jameson Williams) lights up when he’s in this building. Whenever I see him, he’s great to be around,” Modkins said. “Even out there on the field, everybody talks about when he steps between the white lines, he definitely glows then. But when he’s in this building, he’s locked in. He’s in every one of our special teams meetings, locked in.”

“My favorite one is the gunner clip. I mean he goes and he sends this dude into another realm,” Modkins said.

“Most receivers probably wouldn’t want to run down on a punt after playing a full possession on offense but to run down, be the first one down, and then blow someone’s face off — that shows who you are,” Modkins said.

Nation, how much do you anticipate seeing Jameson Williams on the Detroit Lions special teams unit in 2022? Do you believe he could be one of the best returners in football like I do?
