Aeneas Williams, one of the best playmaking corners in NFL history, becomes the final CB from the 1990s All-Decade team to join the Hall of Fame.
A productive CB and later a Safety, even in his later years, Aeneas Williams was a complete DB who could cover the best in the NFL and was a ballhawk who could be counted on to make plays on the ball.
Accomplishments: 1990s All-Decade team, 8 Pro Bowls, 5 All-Pro selections, NFC champion (2001)
Why He Is Deserving: Aeneas Williams was one of the best coverage DBs in the league for over a decade. A 10-year career with the Cardinals netted 6 Pro Bowls and 4 All-Pro selections, including 46 interceptions. Four more years with the Rams allowed him to go to the Superbowl in 2001. His five seasons with 6 or more interceptions are tied for 6th in NFL history. He also was dangerous with the ball in his hands, recording 13 non-offensive TDs – also 5th in league history.
Most Incredible Season: 2001. At age 33, Williams moved to the St. Louis Rams and made an immediate as a defensive leader for the Greatest Show on Turf. Williams recorded 4 interceptions, including a league-leading 2 INT-TDs. He also had a forced fumble and 4 fumble recoveries en route to the Rams’ 2001 NFC Championship win.
