Three games have gone by for the Jets, and DE Leonard Williams has yet to record a sack. Working in defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' system was supposed to let Williams loose, and finally tap into his true first-round pick potential.
But through those three games, the USC product has only recorded three quarterback hits and has 10 combined tackles (three solo, seven assists). That's not the start Williams wants, but his position coach in Andre Carter has some positive things to say about the veteran lineman heading into the bye week.
"I'm proud of Leo," he told reporters Tuesday. "Leo had come in and we talked about this style of play and how he wanted to continue to get better. He's on the upside. I'm so proud of him and how he's developed his game. Granted, the sacks aren't there. If you look from overall stats, he's affected the quarterback 10 times in the past three games."
