Last season, Gang Green only sacked the quarterback 35 times, including 6.5 from ex-Jet Jamal Adams, good for 23rd in the NFL. They were able to get a sack on just 5.6% of their opponents drop backs last year.

The Jets 2019 First Round Pick Quinnen Williams only had 2.5 sacks as a rookie, but Defensive Line Coach Amdre Carter has been impressed with the way that Williams has attacked his second year as an NFL player.

“From Day 1 since I saw him, just a better mentality, just a better body. I think just more confident,” Carter said about Williams. “Obviously when you’re a rookie, especially a high draft pick, there’s a level of high expectations, but also from a mental standpoint. Especially when you look at last year to this year, just from overthinking, over analyzing and not playing fast. He realized, ‘Coach Carter, this is what I have to do. I just gotta line up and go.’ I said, ‘That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you for the past six months.’”
