It seems that Leonard Williams has received a unanimous seal of approval from New York Jets fans. It’s hard to argue with a majority, this young man is quite talented.
Fans have started to speculate that the arrival of Williams might mean the end of Muhammad Wilkerson. It is hard to fathom at this point, but you never know.
