The 6-foot-5 Mike Williams is the former No. 10 overall draft choice of the Detroit Lions who ballooned to 270 pounds and has been out of the league for two years.
Williams told 710 ESPN Seattle’s Kevin Calabro that he’s turned his behavior around and has also shed 40 pounds to get back in NFL form.
“I changed a lot of bad habits, you know alcohol, late night eating. I’m just actually really working and eating right.”
Williams played for Carroll at Southern California through 2003.
He visited USC and his old coach for a pick-me-up in October, before he started working with a personal trainer to get ready for this chance.
Williams says he’s learned from past mistakes and will use that new knowledge to make the most of his opportunity with the Seahawks.
“It’s a live and learn life. I just apply all those bad memories and bad decisions I made to this next time around.”
