The agent of New York Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams wasn’t too appreciative of an NFL Network analyst’s analysis of her client.
Agents are the professional equivalent of a big brother or sister. Whenever the little brother takes one on the chin, the agent is there to fight back.
On Thursday, Quinnen Williams’s agent swooped down to save the day for her client.
In the most respectful way I can ask, have you actually watched him this year?!? I have a lot of respect for what you do, Bucky, but this is the worst take I’ve seen in a really long time.

“In the most respectful way I can ask, have you actually watched him this year?!?” Nicole Lynn tweeted. “I have a lot of respect for what you do, Bucky, but this is the worst take I’ve seen in a really long time.”
Lynn, Williams’s agent, was responding to Bucky Brooks‘s take that the second-year defensive lineman has been a major disappointment for the New York Jets this season.
Williams, 22, has been much better than a “major disappointment” this season. He’s already collected three sacks (0.5 more than he had in all of 2019) and continues to receive solid grades from Pro Football Focus.
He’s currently the No. 37 ranked interior defensive lineman in the NFL with an overall grade of 69.9, according to PFF. While it’s not Aaron Donald-like, it falls just out of the top 32 which would represent a No. 1 IDL (one for each team).
It’s fair to expect more from the No. 3 pick in the 2019 NFL draft, but the kid has shown great signs of improvement from his extremely disappointing rookie campaign.
Big Quinnen Williams and the New York Jets look for their first victory when they head to Kansas City this weekend to take on the defending champion Chiefs.
