Former Tennessee Vols defensive lineman Jordan Williams, who played under Derek Dooley and Butch Jones, spent parts of five seasons in the NFL after his UT career was over.
After being waived by the Tennessee Titans before the start of the 2019 season, Williams has made a career as a financial adviser in Florida.
Vols offensive lineman Trey Smith ran into Williams at the Super Bowl earlier this month, where he received some sound financial advice from the former UT defensive lineman.
According to The Athletic, Williams told Smith to not touch 80 percent of his earnings until his playing days are over — not even to help out family members.
That’s certainly some great advice from Williams — assuming you’re in a financial situation where you can live by the rule.
While most Americans probably aren’t in that situation, Smith should be in the near future.
Smith, who announced his return to Tennessee for his senior season earlier this year, should be an early round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft — provided he stays healthy in 2020 — which will come with a hefty pay day.
