Jets' Leonard Williams: I hope Brady is my first sack

CHICAGO -- New York JetsNo. 6 overall pickLeonard Williams' first NFL press conference was music to the ears of gridiron fans in the Big Apple.

Asked about facing the Super Bowl champions twice a year in the AFC East, Williams quipped, "I hope that's the first sack of my career ... against Tom Brady."

To paint a fair picture, the former USC star said it with a smile and no malice, adding respectfully, "I'm looking forward to tackling a great quarterback like that."

Williams had higher priorities Thursday than studying the Jets' schedule, which shows that he won't play against the Patriots until Week 7.

As a defensive end rotating with Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson on the best three-man front in football, Williams should have little trouble picking up a sack in the first six weeks of the season.

If not, the Super Bowl MVP will be in the crosshairs.
