Leonard Williams is already a fan of his new defensive coordinator.
The Jets hired veteran defensive coordinator Gregg Williams as they revamped their coaching staff this offseason and their defensive tackle is expecting big things.
"I feel like that kind of energy brings the best out of people," Leonard Williams told nyjets.com. "Same with our offensive line coach (Dowell Loggains) and head coach (Adam Gase) -- he's a great, passionate offensive coach -- so I feel like practice is going to be really competitive and it's going to be able to push our team."
The Jets, who began their offseason workout program this week, have also added linebacker C.J. Mosley to their defense, too, to go along with Williams up front and Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams in the secondary.
Leonard Williams is excited about the different things his new defensive coordinator can do with the talent they have.
"I can play nose, 3-technique, defensive end," he said. "Even as a defense, I feel like we have a lot of playmakers on the team. Putting guys in the best position to make a play is really important and if we have that many playmakers on the defense, play with it. Put us in the best spot and let guys fly around. I'm excited about it."
