Vikings safety Tank Williams addressed the mix-up by ESPN analyst Emmitt Smith, who talked about him, when he intended to speak about former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson.
"He said he was sorry for mixing me up with Tank Johnson and we left it at that," Williams said of his conversation with Smith. "I said no problem. It's no big deal. It's not the first time it's happened.
"He was sincerely apologetic and I said I understand and I accepted," Williams said. "I don't see how it happens. I know we have the same first name, but Williams, Johnson. About 300-something pounds, 200-something pounds. Bald head, braids. But, you know, I guess it happens."
