Kevin Williams Wants To Retire As A Viking

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Defensive tackle Kevin Williams might be a member of the Seattle Seahawks right now, but when the time comes for him to hang up the spikes, there's only one place that he wants to be.

In an interview with Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Williams says that when he calls it quits. . .whenever that might be. . .he wants to do it after signing a ceremonial one-day contract with the team he played his first eleven seasons for.

"Who else would I retire for?" Williams said in a phone interview. "I played 11 years with the Vikings. That would be great. I would hope that would be the goal for the Vikings and for me."

Williams moved into the starting lineup for the Seahawks back in Week 10, but has still played less than half of the team's defensive snaps this season. In the interview, Williams says that he could play for a while if he continues to play such a low percentage of snaps, but you have to wonder whether or not he'll hang it up if the Seahawks should win Super Bowl XLIX next weekend.

Whenever Kevin Williams decides to call it quits, however, he'll be doing it as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. There's almost certainly a spot in the Ring of Honor reserved for him at some point as well. Maybe he and Pat Williams could go in together one year in the near future.
