Vikings DT Williams plays with name misspelled on jersey

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams is a five-time Pro Bowl pick and one of the NFL's best defensive players.

Maybe the team's jersey maker should get to know him a little better.

Williams played Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers with his last name spelled incorrectly on the back of his purple jersey. His jersey had the 'i' and the 'a' transposed, making it read W-I-L-L-A-I-M-S.

The Vikings have two other players with the last name Williams. But Reebok had the jerseys for defensive tackle Pat Williams and safety Madieu Williams spelled correctly.
