Packers vs. Lions: Tramon Williams says he's 'definitely Optimus Prime'

Leon Halip

Green Bay's Tramon Williams is both a Transformers fan and excited about squaring off with the Lions' Calvin Johnson this Sunday.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams is looking forward to his on-field pairing with Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson this Sunday. He's excited for the football aspect as well as the "Transformers" tie-in, according to a report from Tyler Dunne of the the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Wednesday.

Williams, according to the report, was an avid "Transformers" fan growing up, referring to himself as "Optimus Prime" and Green Bay's secondary "the Autobots" heading into Sunday's contest. Johnson, who goes by Megatron for his freakish athletic ability and size, roasted the Packers' secondary for 244 receiving yards, the most ever by a Green Bay foe, in the Packers' 45-41 win in Week 17 last season.

In last season's meeting on Thanksgiving, however, Williams turned Johnson into a non-factor, limiting the receiver to four receptions for 49 yards in Green Bay's 27-15 win.

According to the report, Williams said he will look to be aggressive when matched up with Johnson on Sunday, though he also noted that Detroit could try to line Johnson up in different areas on the field to expose favorable match-ups.
