Williams stated in an interview with ESPN’s Nick Wagoner that winning the Super Bowl would be “like one of those fairy tales” to round out a 2019 comeback narrative that included a cancer scare.

Playing for Washington, Williams disclosed in October 2019 that he was diagnosed with Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans, a rare soft tissue tumor that begins deep under the skin and was “within weeks of metastasizing through to my brain to my skull.”

Williams had to have surgery to remove the malignant tumor due to the circumstances. Williams claimed that he first observed the growth in 2013 and that he has since informed the Washington team physicians several times about it, but they have always assured him that there is no need for concern.

Williams and the team disagreed with the way the incident was handled. He was upset that the medical personnel and then-President of Washington, Bruce Allen, had not taken the problem seriously.

An official evaluation of Williams’ medical records and care was sought by the squad.

In October 2019, Williams expressed to reporters that he had “no trust” in Washington. After being placed on the reserve list during training camp and the non-football injury list after failing a physical due to helmet discomfort following surgery, he did not play in the 2019 season.

In April 2020, Washington dealt Williams to the 49ers in San Francisco. He is currently in his 14th season and is making his Super Bowl debut. He has previously declared that he plans to rejoin the Niners in 2024.

In each of the last three seasons, the 35-year-old has been selected to the All-Pro first team, and in the previous 11 seasons, he has been named to the Pro Bowl.
