Yes but the thread is about his golf skill.

#95 is just one of those dudes that's just all around very good at everything he touches.  I too hope he makes it back to this organization as a coach someday.

I wish he would have played in the Pro-am at Oak Hill this past week. Would have been fun to follow.

 

All I've heard from members who've interacted with him is that he's a great golfer and even better guy.

Nice story on Kyle's success on the golf course- 

 

 

 

He's lookin' pretty fit and trim in that picture, dontcha think?

 

Kyle Williams is just an all around awesome athlete.  Several times going back to just after KW was drafted, someone asked "who is the best athlete on the team?" and the answer was "Kyle Williams".  A few years later, same question, same answer.  And just a few years ago, still same answer.  It's not unusual for NFL players to have exceled in more than one sport in HS, but Williams had 3 (baseball, football, and track).  At one point I believe he swam competitively also - who could forget the swimming contest with Marshawn Lynch?

 

I know, I know "golf skill"

I remember someone referred to Kyle as a rolling ball of razor blades during training camp, his rookie year.

I think he was the best athlete on the team until Tyrod showed up.  Some people say Tyrod is the best athlete they've ever seen.  

 

Kyle was a great football player. 

 

Did you see the video of McDermott introducing Kyle when he announced his retirement to the team?  McDermott said the first time he ever saw Kyle was at the Pro Bowl when McDermott was one of the coaches.   He said Kyle stood out as an athlete and a worker.  He said it meant a lot to him to get a chance to coach Kyle in Buffalo.  High praise.

I’m sure he’s excelling at being a father, and I’m sure that’s his #1 priority. He has more time to focus on that now. Thank you, Kyle. I hope you stay close to the Bills family, and wish you all the best!

Kyle was a slightly less talented Joe Klecko. And for you kids out there..That's a serious compliment.

Kyle is the dude who will beat you at golf, pool, darts, bowling, or whatever game you bring up. Just one of those guys with great hand-eye coordination who is a sneaky good athlete. Plus he has that competitive fire. 

 

It’s a shame he only got one playoff game as a Bill but he will forever be a tremendous ambassador for the franchise.

Did you read the article until the end? It talks about him trying coaching to see what he likes.

 

His was a perfectly reasonable comment. Yours showed you didn't read it. Sorry.

 

 

Outside of golf, Williams plans to do some studio work for NFL Network, which includes spending a few days at Bills training camp in Rochester. But he doesn’t see himself as a full-time game analyst. He might even do some coaching.

“I want to see what I like and don’t like,” said Williams. “I want to see what I’m passionate about, see what I can sink my teeth into. I don’t sit still very well.”

For an undersized DT like he was, I wouldn’t be surprised if he lost a bunch of weight after he retired. There are a ton of stories of former NFL players who walk around way lighter than they used to play at.

 

Unreal athlete no doubt, I heard he was a monster on the basketball court too.

Fixed.

 

Which is also why I'd like to see him as a position coach.  His presence alone says "work your ass off to be successful."

I shouldn't "argue" with someone who still has Williams displayed prominently, but are you sure you aren't thinking of Tim Anderson? Seems like the quote was about a player who never panned out.

Kyle Williams eliminated in Round of 16 in U.S. Amateur Four-Ball tournament

Posted by Curtis Crabtree on May 30, 2019, 12:22 AM EDT
 

Former Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams and partner Greg Berthelot made it to the match play portion of the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship before bowing out in the Round of 16.

 

The 2019 championship was contested over five days at Bandon Dunes Resort in Bandon, Ore. on the Pacific Dunes and Old Macdonald courses. The field consisted of 128 two-man teams that played 36 holes of stroke play in better ball format over the first two days with the top 32 teams advancing to match play.
