Strahan, a second-round pick by the Giants out of Texas Southern in 1993, spent his entire 15-year career with the New York Giants, emerging as one of the finest pass-rushers in the game. His 141.5 sacks are the most in Giants history, and his 22.5 sacks in 2001 are a single-season NFL record.
A defensive back from Southern who spent the majority of his career in Arizona with the Cardinals and finished up in St. Louis with the Rams, Williams made the Pro Bowl eight times and was a First-Team All-Pro three times.
He finished his 14-year career with 677 tackles, 55 interceptions and 23 fumble recoveries. Williams scored 12 touchdowns — nine on interceptions and three on fumble recoveries — and was generally considered to be one of the best cornerbacks of his generation.
