Cards do a number on Williams

Posted by Darren Urban on April 23, 2010 – 2:48 pm

Dan Williams was in the Cardinals’ locker room for the first time an hour ago, and was asked what number he wanted. Truth be told, he wanted 55, because that was his college number. That wasn’t happening, not with Joey Porter on the roster. Coincidentally, almost all the double numbers are retired for the Cards — 77 (Stan Mauldin) , 88 (J.V. Cain) , 99 (Marshall Goldberg) — and 66 is in use (guard Jonathan Palmer). So Williams went with 92, now open with Bertrand Berry’s retirement.

“I definitely take 92 — that works,” Williams said. “That was Reggie White’s number.”

Ah. There’s the secret. White, the Hall of Fame defensive lineman, was a star at the University of Tennessee long before Williams gained his own stardom.

“I didn’t get a chance to have that number at Tennessee, so if I could get it here in Arizona, I’m loving it,” Williams said.

    R. White that is cool I wish that Dan can have any where similar career to that of the great White. Good luck man I never really thought that we can have this guy available at 26 but now that we have him … I am love in it.

    Now lets go get Sean Lee he is a great guy reminds me of Urlacker.

    If it’s true he has a high motor, that’s the best part. Getting an interior lineman with a high motor is so hard to find.

    I know this is totally off topic. I dont know if you do the backround for the website, but on the home page where it shows all the players (Drc A-Dub Etc.) On the far right the picture of the tickets i think it shows Rolle.
    So just saying. 😀

    I don’t want to seem dumb but exactly what does a “high motor mean”? Is it that he is fast? agile? has stamina?

    Thanks for helping me understand better.

    It’s a euphemism for consistent effort.

    Thanks for the assist. I’m learning little by little and sometimes people seem to just make up new ways to say the same things (I’m sure just to confuse us novices).

    I’d guess there are others who were wondering the same thing.

    Cards had a solid draft. Still not sure about the QB-situation though.
