This is tremendous news for a group that has loads of talent already returning on both sides of the ball.
Williams transitioned over from his safety slot earlier in the season, and he made that transition about as smooth as it could possibly be, given his natural running back abilities from high school.
Matias will be back to block for Williams once again, as well as provide the needed help in pass protection where he did a wonderful job this season.
O’Leary, with the emergence of Jameis Winston, had his breakout campaign in 2013, catching 33 passes for 557 yards and seven touchdowns, and will be another huge asset the growing passing attack.
And as for Timmy Jernigan…You go get yourself paid, big man. You’ve earned every penny of it.
