The coolest thing about the NFL is the unpredictability factor. That’s why you play the games is the iconic phrase pronounced weekly.

A team could be an underdog with three touchdowns and still find a way to end the surprise.

Or a player could be projected for a role, then something happens and things change. That’s exactly what happened to the New York Jets.

On the way to the recent squad cuts, the Jacksonville Jaguars have thrown linebacker Quincy Williams on the streets. He didn’t last long like the jets have scooped it from the waiver wire.

Most people know him better as Quinnen Williams’ older brother, contrary to his own merits.

In theory, this was nothing more than a profound step for a team that is never happy with its roster. Although the injury mistake forced the green-whites to swivel.

Williams was forced into the starting XI after a string of injuries and it wasn’t nice.

He was an incredibly incomplete gamer who could certainly pop for a big hit every now and then, but connected with it some painful failures in passport cover.

Williams caught a lot of heat on social media, but the team held on to him and he rewarded them for their faith.

The former Murray State product continued his hard-hitting ways, got better at reporting and most importantly, he spread his infectious energy to the rest of the team to raise their level of play:

You can make fun of General Manager Joe Douglas for a lot of things, but signing undrafted free agents (Bryce Huff, Javelin Guidry) and spotting waiver wire finds (John Franklin-Myers, Williams) isn’t one of them.

Despite his surprisingly spectacular game, Quincy’s dream seems to come to a screeching halt.

During Monday’s press conference with Jets head coach Robert Saleh, he was asked what will happen if linebacker Jarrad Davis returns:

Davis was initially injured during the preseason against the Green Bay Packers. When he was signed into the free agency, the Jets selected him first among all the other free agencies.

That’s because this coaching staff believe they can be a stallion. Just read / hear Saleh and Defensive Coordinator Jeff Ulbrich talk about Davis’ potential.

The Jets hope Davis will return after week 6 when the team travels to play the New England Patriots.

That seems to be the end of the inspiring story of Williams. As Connor Hughes from The Athletic pointed out on Twitter, “that would likely mean Quincy Williams taking on a rotating role.”

That will be a bit of a shame as Williams rose to a fan favorite role during his time as a starter, but the fans and the Jets can have peace of mind at night knowing they have this guy ready to step in anytime they want.
