Williams said today that Donald is very worthy of the massive new contract he received, but for selfish reasons Williams would have liked to see Donald walk away instead.
“I wish he would have retired,” Williams said with a laugh, via Jennifer Lee Chan of NBCSportsBayArea.com.
But Williams acknowledged that Donald is one of a kind, and said he looks forward to continuing to test himself against the best.
“He deserved a contract. We all know what he can do. I don’t know him on a personal level but I like competing against him. Brings out the best in all of us,” Williams said.
