Alabama star defensive tackle Quinnen Williams is about to become a very rich young man as he prepares to enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

Projected to be a top-five pick, his first NFL contract is going to be flush with guaranteed cash.

The young man already knows what he wants to spend his first paycheck on, too, and what his mind is set on is incredibly sweet.



“I think I’m going to buy my grandma a car,” he said in an interview with TMZ Sports. Williams also said he wants to buy her some jewelry because she doesn’t really wear any.

The ‘Bama star lineman said his grandmother has been very tight with cash, but his impending NFL paychecks are going to change all that.

A nightmare on the gridiron, it seems Williams is a big old softy off the field — just the way it should be.
