Cheese Curds, 12/8: Jamaal Williams leads Packers on the ground & the dance floor

The rookie back has some slick feet, and it's not just his running that has garnered attention recently.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Jamaal Williams is the third running back to start for the Green Bay Packers. However, he is almost certainly number one among that group in terms of having an outgoing, excitable personality.

Williams has been making a huge impact on the field these last few weeks, having taken over the starting job following injuries to Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones. He has provided a consistent rushing threat as the Packers try to develop an offense with Brett Hundley at quarterback, and Williams earned a significant league-wide honor for his performance in the team's most recent game.
