Trent Williams has been named to seven Pro Bowls, but hasn’t exactly played with a lot of championship-caliber quarterbacks. Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins were the closest thing Williams got to consistent quarterback play during his nine seasons in Washington.
The 49ers acquired Williams in April for a pair of draft picks, hoping the left tackle can return to his previous form after missing all of last season due to a holdout and failed physical. While joining NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport on his podcast Monday, Williams expressed his excitement to block for 49ers’ signal-caller Jimmy Garoppolo.
“I think Jimmy G is awesome,” Williams said on “RapSheet + Friends.” “I think he has proven that he’s a quarterback you can win with. In this league, it’s just hard to find."
