WATCH: Former Washington OL Trent Williams headed to the Super Bowl after 14 NFL seasons

After 14 NFL seasons, Trent Williams is headed to the Super Bowl.

Williams’ 49ers defeated the Detroit Lions 34-31 in the NFC Championship on Sunday to advance to Super Bowl LVIII. San Francisco trailed 24-7 at halftime before outscoring Detroit 17-0 in the third quarter and scored 27 consecutive points to take a 34-24 lead before holding off the Lions in a three-point win.

Williams spent the first 10 seasons of his NFL career in Washington after being the No. 4 overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft. His falling out with former team president Bruce Allen was well documented.

Yet, when Ron Rivera took over as head coach in 2020, he traded Williams to the 49ers for a 2020 fifth-round pick and a 2021 third-round pick.

Since coming to San Francisco, Williams has been named first-team All-Pro three times and appeared in the three NFC Championship games.

At 35, Williams remains arguably the NFL’s best offensive tackle, and now, he’ll be playing for his first championship.

As you’d expect, Williams was excited and emotional after Sunday’s game.
