- 2/2/2014 -
Former Arizona Cardinals and Southern University All-America cornerback Aeneas Williams was elected to the National Football League (NFL) Hall of Fame.
Williams was one of seven players selected, joining DE Michael Strahan, LB Derrick Brooks, WR Andre Reed, OT Walter Jones, P Ray Guy, and DE Claude Humphrey.
The Class of 2014 will be inducted into the Canton, Ohio, shrine later this summer. This year marked the third consecutive year Williams appeared as a Hall of Fame finalist.
Williams was drafted by the Cardinals in the third round out of SU in 1991. He spent 10 years with the team, never missing a game, starting all but one. He appeared in eight Pro Bowls, including six consecutive games between '94 and '99. He played his final four seasons with the St. Louis Rams and retired after the 2004 season.
Williams finished his career with 55 interceptions, 46 with the Cardinals.
