49ers WR Kyle Williams To Honor Slain Friend During 2013 Season
As Kyle Williams suits up for his first game in more than nine months, he will pull his No. 10 San Francisco 49ers jersey over a new No. 81 tattoo on his inner left forearm that honors a former teammate.
Williams added the fresh ink during the offseason as a tribute to a former Arizona State teammate, Tyrice Thompson, who died Feb. 2 from injuries suffered when he was stabbed Jan. 27 while working at a popular Scottsdale, Ariz., nightclub. Williams will play in Thompson's honor this season -- the fourth-year pro's return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that required surgery and ended his 2012 season in late November.
"He was family to everybody," Williams said. "He's a guy I played with at ASU, and kind of like a big brother to me. When he was here [alive] he was always looking over me and there for me, always sharing wisdom."
Now that he is healthy at last, the 25-year-old Williams has a chance to be San Francisco's No. 2 wide receiver opposite Anquan Boldin. Williams also will handle some kick return duties for the NFC champions.
Thanks to 86WARD for the sig!
