    Former third-round NFL draft pick Brennan Williams signs with WWE

    "Brennan Williams is big – 6-foot-7 and 300 pounds.

    He has a black belt in taekwondo.

    And he has been trained by a Hall of Famer.

    Sounds like the ingredients to start a WWE career.

    Williams, a 2013 third-round NFL draft pick by the Houston Texans, signed with the WWE on Monday and reported to the Performance Center in Orlando to start his training.

    Williams, whose dad also played in the NFL, was an offensive tackle at North Carolina before being selected No. 89 overall. He missed his rookie season after a knee injury and then was released in training camp in 2014. He was in training camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars and then spent two days on the New England Patriots practice squad.

    After being released, Williams went to Houston to train with Booker T and debuted in February under the ring name Marcellus Black. Days after his debut, he took part in a tryout at the Performance Center."
