ALLEN PARK — The average career on an NFL player is under four seasons and a huge percentage of the league’s players are clinging to the fringes, trying to keep those careers afloat.

That’s essentially been Nick Williams’ story since the day he was drafted. Selected in the seventh round in 2013 out of Samford – a private school in Birmingham, Ala. with approximately 5,000 students – he missed his rookie season due to injury and played just one defensive snap in 2014.
