In his third season with the Giants, the big linebacker started in five of the team's 16 regular season games. In doing so, he earned a sack and 22 tackles.
It was two seasons later, in 1996, that Widmer became a full-time starter in the Giants' defensive backfield. He picked off two passes, recovered a fumble, had a sack, made 68 tackles and assisted on 35 more.
Widmer would produce in a similar fashion over the next few seasons, before winding up his career as a New York Giant following the 1999 season.
