Vikings DT Kevin Williams was named to the NFC Pro Bowl team on Friday, replacing injured Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh. It marks the 5th straight season that Williams was recognized as a Pro Bowler and the 6th time overall in his 8-year career.
Williams started all 16 games for the Vikings during the 2010 season and finished with 49 tackles, 9 tackles-for-loss, 7 passes defended, 1.0 sack and 1 forced fumble. He has totaled 49.5 sacks in his career, the most among DTs in the NFL since he entered the NFL in 2003.
“I look at it as a great honor by your peers and your coaches around the league to be selected to the Pro Bowl,” Williams said. “I really enjoy it and I really appreciate the honor.”
Williams joins RB Adrian Peterson as the 2nd Viking on the NFC Pro Bowl squad.
“It’s great to be with Adrian,” Williams said. “I see him every day and he’s going to give you the same thing. Those guys better watch out. It’s a nice time to converse with all your peers and just catch up with all the guys after a tough season.”
