Since his part in the Saints’ ill-fated last-second play in the divisional playoff loss, Marcus Williams is making it easy to root for him to rebound.

The safety, who had a solid rookie season with four interceptions, has handled what likely is the worst moment he will have in the NFL like a pro’s pro.

Williams posted a two-minute video on Twitter of his offseason training at Winner Circle Athletics in Southern California. It opens with Stefon Diggs‘ game-winning touchdown catch against the Saints before a day-in-the-life of Williams with audio from the Any Given Sunday speech that coach Tony D’Amato — played by Al Pacino — gave in the movie.
