There are once again two players named Trevor Williams on active rosters playing professionally in Pennsylvania.

Former Penn State cornerback Trevor Williams was promoted to the active roster Thursday by the Philadelphia Eagles. The Pittsburgh Pirates also have pitcher Trevor Williams.

Williams was called up from the practice squad by the Eagles last week and played two snaps. He went back to the practice squad but was added to the active roster Thursday.

From PhiladelphiaEagles.com:

Williams was originally signed by the Eagles to a futures deal in 2020. The 5-11, 191-pound Penn State product has 40 games (27 starts) on his resume, mostly from his time with the Chargers. In 2017, Williams started 15 of the Chargers’ 16 games. The Eagles now have five cornerbacks on the active roster. The Bengals’ most popular offensive formations incorporate three wide receivers, so the depth at the position is important ahead of Sunday’s matchup.

Williams played at Penn State from 2012-15 and went undrafted in the 2016 NFL draft. Still, he’s been able to stay in the league for four years and be a productive player.
