Illustration for article titled Trent Williams Owns A Painting Of Himself As A Gorilla, Because Of Course He Does

Redskins tackle Trent Williams has a nickname: Silverback. It's a self-bestowed nickname, but he's really committed to the idea. He dropped six figures on a massive diamond gorilla head chain, had Roger Goodell introduce him as Silverback when he was drafted, and apparently has remodeled his basement in a Midcentury American Primate style.


A reader sends along this photo he says was recently taken in Williams's basement. But that's not all. Tipster says there's also a gorilla printed on his pool table's felt, and "a painting of Trent playing O-line blocking a gorilla defensive end."

Presumably Williams had the art commissioned himself, though he does totally seem like the type whose friends and family would only buy him gorilla-themed gifts on birthdays and Christmas.
