Bengals running back Trayveon Williams is heading back to school. Just not as a student... Per Ben Baby of ESPN, Williams will return to his alma mater, Texas A&M, where he'll teach an NIL class at the Aggies' law school.

"Having someone who has been in that system, who can relate, and who can bring a certain stamp of actual, real-life engagement in that world, I feel like can be beneficial," the Cincy RB said on Alex Sinatra's podcast, a business consultant who Williams will be co-teaching the class with.

"There has to be someone that represents them," he continued. "There has to be someone who understands the ins and outs when it comes to constructing contracts and doing all the little, minute details in the middle of it."

The NFL world reacted to the running back's professor news on Wednesday.

"Need more of this," one user replied.

"Cool as [expletive]," another said.

"This is dope."

"This awesome," another said. "Props to [Trayveon]."

"Love this!!!"

"Man that's cool as hell," another said.

"Trayveon Williams, welcome to the adjunct industrial complex," tweeted Justin Carter. "Good luck."

"This is good stuff," another said. "Kudos to Trayveon, I mean, Professor Williams."

Class is scheduled to be in session for spring of 2023.
