A then very young man.
Serious, experienced, BUSINESS agent is what he needed from the very beginning.
An athlete and a comedian and a whatever, pick one.
You cannot be all things.

He could have had a better career. He needed better handlers to start.

Interesting.
Seems the guy is at peace with it, no regrets,.

Williams suffered from extreme social anxiety. I imagine it was hell being thrown into the spotlight the way he was. The organization gave up it entire draft for him. That’s a lot of pressure.
He was also gay. I imagine that’s hard on gay NFL players today much less back then.
