Running back Marshawn Lynch is back in the NFL this season and at least one Jets defensive player is already taking notice.
Leonard Williams told reporters Wednesday that he is impressed by Lynch, who was officially retired for the 2016 season. The 31-year-old has returned to the league this year to join the Raiders, who host the Jets in Week 2.
"I was like, this is a guy who just retired and re-entered the league and he's still one of the top running backs," Williams said, according to ESPN. "It's pretty amazing to see that. He's a great running back."
Lynch rushed for 76 yards on 18 carries during his first regular-season action last Sunday. Meanwhile, the Jets struggled to contain Bills RB LeSean McCoy (110 yards) in their opening week matchup.
"The biggest problem I saw was just a bunch of small details," Williams said. "It wasn't like anyone was getting beat really badly. People weren't getting beat that bad. It's just us executing our plays and making sure we stay in our gap, Staying disciplined and staying on the details every play. As soon as someone messed up on one detail, that's when something broke."
