Former Arizona Cardinals defensive back Aeneas Williams was a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012 and 2013. He didn't make it.

He made it in 2014.

Williams, drafted in the third round in 1991, played 10 seasons for the Cardinals and four for the St. Louis Rams. The Southern University product was selected to eight Pro Bowls and also made the All-Pro team four times. He finished with 55 career interceptions, including nine he returned for touchdowns. He was on just one winning team while playing in the desert.

Needless to say, Williams is proud to be elected to Canton. Enshrinement is slated for Aug. 2.

“When you’re on team for 10 years, many times you might not have the success some guys have,” said Williams via “But being with the Arizona Cardinals 10 years, the one playoff experience, I will never forget the foundation, growing up as a player and learning to play a game at a level of excellence, even when you don’t necessarily have the team success.”

The other members of the Hall of Fame class are Derrick Brooks, Michael Strahan, Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Ray Guy and Claude Humphrey.
