Jamaal Williams knows one thing: Aaron Rodgers would never make the same mistake Tom Brady did during his last game against the Chicago Bears.
The Green Bay Packers running back got on the subject of Brady during his weekly video appearance with Game On Wisconsin on Tuesday while discussing Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II, who trains with him under Williams’ uncle Luke Neal during offseasons and is represented by the same sports agency.
When asked who has the better quarterback — him or Jones — Williams couldn’t resist trolling Brady a bit for his fourth-down mistake on Thursday Night Football in Week 5.
“I’m pretty sure my quarterback knows what fourth down is, you know what I mean?” Williams said, getting laughs from the hosts. “That’s what I’m saying, like … Aaron Rodgers would never do that, never. You know what I mean? He’s too smart for that, we’d never be in that type of situation because A-Rod, he’s always prepared, always looking at the clock. We’ve got too many people who are just too ready to go, but we’ve always been in those type of pressure situations before, so I just feel like it’s natural for us to just be on top of everything and just go ball. I would never expect that from my boy 12, never.”

Williams Keeps Good Relationship With Jones
Williams and Jones, who entered the NFL one year apart, have maintained a good relationship through their training and off-the-field connections, and none of that changes for Williams when the two of them face one another at 3:25 p.m. CT this Sunday.
“It’s just that positive competition,” Williams said Tuesday of facing Jones. “You just want to do your best, see them do their best, especially to be both on offense. He’s lucky I ain’t on defense … he’s lucky he ain’t got to go against me because I’m definitely taking those legs out. That boy a little stocky a little bit.”
Chances are good Jones will finish with better numbers on Sunday given he plays the primary role out of the Bucs’ backfield and Williams serves as the Packers’ No. 2 to star Aaron Jones, but both backs have the potential to be dangerous. Ronald Jones is averaging 4.9 yards per carry on 74 attempts compared with Williams’ 3.7 on 29 attempts, while Williams has been the better pass-catcher with more receiving yards (119 to 76) on fewer receptions (13 to 15).
Williams spent nearly 45 minutes talking about everything from this week’s game against the Bucs to setting his daughter’s trampoline in the garage, bringing the usual charm that has made him a fan-favorite Packers personality over the past few seasons.
