Meet Marcus Williams, the ‘next man up’ in Jets’ depleted secondary

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — You’d think Marcus Williams might feel out of place with the New York Jets.

Start with the fact the undrafted rookie wasn’t even with the Jets in training camp. And he wasn’t even on the active roster until last week. And he’d never played an NFL game for any team until Sunday.

One more thing: Williams hadn’t played in a game his team lost in more than two years.

Talk about culture shock.

Then again, maybe that history of success — Williams’ North Dakota State team won the last 24 games he played, winning back-to-back FCS championships — is why Williams is one of the few Jets who hasn’t been swallowed up into the morass the team has become during an eight-game losing skid.
