Tramon Williams Profile
Tramon Williams committed a costly penalty during the fourth quarter of Sunday's 37-34 loss at Minnesota.
On third-and-goal from the 12, a screen to Toby Gerhart was stopped at the 7-yard line. Away from the ball, however, Williams was flagged for illegal use of hands against Vikings receiver Michael Jenkins. Williams was furious and had to be pulled away by teammates. Three plays later, Jenkins caught a 3-yard touchdown pass to give the Vikings a 34-27 lead.
"Oh, man, he was just pushing off the whole damn time," Williams said. "The referees just act like they don't see anything. You've got to bring some fight sometimes and this is the time of year you can bring out but you've got to be more composed."
Williams said the penalty was an accident.
"I really wasn't trying to go to the face," he said. "A lot of times, receivers come off the line and they drop their hips and they get into where you're punching at. I wasn't doing it on purpose but I was doing it with violence."
