Kevin Williams is one of the most talented defensive tackles in the NFL, but the most interesting events surrounding his career did not come on the field. During the 2003 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings took too much time and the two teams behind them made selections before the Vikings selected Williams. He also fought the league over a banned substance suspension for almost three years before having it cut in half.
The Minnesota Vikings accelerated their rebuilding project this year with an aggressive purge of expensive veteran starters. Kevin Williams, though, didn’t worry.
Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams said Sunday that he has not heard from the NFL about a possible suspension stemming from a weight loss supplement he took three years ago.
