The newly drafted Chicago Bears quarterback revealed the reason behind his painted nails, refusing to back down from his unique sense of style as he enters the NFL arena.

The quarterback from Washington, D.C., turned heads on draft day with his unconventional ensemble, featuring a double-breasted blazer alongside his distinctively painted nails.

Addressing his choice during an interview, Williams unapologetically backed his style sense.

“I paint my nails, I wear unique things,” Caleb said during the interview, via People. “It’s me. You call it unique. I call it me.”

Williams is determined to continue using fashion as a form of self-expression, aiming to set a trend rather than conforming to norms.

“I’ve been doing it before college, but it took everybody by surprise, just because you don’t always see male athletes who play football paint their nails,” he added.

The former USC QB views his fashion choices as an extension of his individuality, unapologetically defying stereotypes within the football community.
