He played in every game this season, recording 22 tackles, three sacks and two pass breakups.
A six-time Pro Bowler at the three-technique, Williams started the final nine games, including playoffs, at nose tackle. He stabilized the defensive front and finished with 30 tackles and three sacks.
“It’s kind of unique how things happened,” Williams told the team's website. “You come in to help contribute wherever you can, you lose one of your starting players to injury and you’re moving to the nose. I’m just trying to do whatever I’m called upon to do and make plays.”
Williams is headed to his first Super Bowl after winning two playoff games during his 11-year tenure in Minnesota.
"It’s awesome, man,” Williams said. “I’m still kind of in a little disbelief, how we got it done and how the game unfolded. I was happy [Sunday night]. Now I’m back to concentrating on let’s get this other win now.”
The devastating blow means Seattle will give increased snaps to six-time Pro Bowler
Williams, a six-time Pro Bowl player and former defensive captain with the Vikings, will make in excess of $2 million, according to league sources. He will be entering his 12th season in the NFL, having spent his entire career until now with the Vikings.
Williams started 15 games last season for the Vikings with 3.5 sacks and an interception.
