Jamaal Williams will make his return to Green Bay on Monday night, and it sounds like the Detroit Lions running back is looking to prove something to his former team.

While speaking with reporters Thursday, Williams compared the Packers to an ex-girlfriend and the Lions to being in a new relationship.

"Y'all act like I left on my own, golly. I didn't do it," Williams said. "Shoot, if I could have stayed, I could have stayed. If I can't, they didn't want me, like that ex-girlfriend. Shoot, I gotta go.

"But I got a rebound and it was the Lions, they picked me up. Now they feeding me good, taking me to dinners. Another man's trash is another man's treasure."

The 26-year-old Williams was allowed to walk in free agency after spending the last four seasons in Green Bay, where he served as a backup to Aaron Jones. He inked a two-year deal with the Lions in March.

In his Lions debut Sunday, Williams rushed for 54 yards and a touchdown and caught eight passes for another 56 yards.
