Arizona Cardinals: CB Aeneas Williams
As great as Aeneas Williams was, his most notable play was the hit that unfortunately ended the career of Hall of Fame QB Steve Young, although the late Lawrence Phillips and his lack of blocking had a lot to do with that. Regardless, as nice as a man Williams was and still is to this day, on the field, this Cardinal was anything but pleasant.
Williams’ play on the field was spectacular, with powerful hits and an intensity that the Cardinals’ secondary did not have until his arrival since Larry Wilson patrolled the back end. Williams had a key interception while with the Rams in 2001 that secured their berth in Super Bowl XXXVI, a game they lost to Tom Brady and the Patriots. Still, it’s his accomplishments and intensity as a Cardinal that puts him on this list.
