49ers Superstar Trent Williams Puts STOP on Retirement Rumors!
Trent Williams recently became the eighth offensive lineman ever with at least 11 Pro Bowl selections. Continue on for all the details…
CelebnSports247.com has learned that many assume this season as well as playoff run might be his final time in the league.
However, Trent Williams put a stop to those assumptions this week. The San Francisco 49ers tackle has no intention of retiring after the 2023 campaign.
“Oh, yeah. 100 percent,” Williams said when asked if he intends to return for the 2024 season, per Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.
He added that he is eyeing a Pro Bowl record as well: “I want to break the record for tackles. That’s a big thing for me.”
“I definitely dropped to my knees and thanked God because that’s not promised. You can have an amazing Hall of Fame career and still don’t see 11 Pro Bowls. So I’m super proud of that.”
With his selection to the 2024 Pro Bowl Games, Williams became the eighth offensive lineman in NFL history to earn 11 Pro Bowl selections. He would love not to be there since the 49ers have bigger plans to be at the Super Bowl.
Williams is also just the fourth tackle to earn 11 Pro Bowl nods, joining Hall of Famers Anthony Muñoz, Jonathan Ogden, and Willie Roaf.
His decision to come back means the 49ers do not have to feel pressed to find his replacement yet.
