HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Former Houston Texans player Mario Williams may not be hitting the football field with an amazing sack anymore, but he’s certainly scoring greatness for the city of Houston.

In an extreme gesture of warmth and thankfulness to the Houston police, Williams donated five new Dodge Chargers, which are now part of the Houston Police Department on Tuesday.

The cars which will be used for traffic enforcement, will blend in with other Houston traffic with their black exteriors and “low key” finishes.

Houston’s Police Chief Charles McClelland thanked Williams for his donation and presented him with an honorary badge on Tuesday. Back in 2011, Williams also donated Chevrolet Camaro cars to the police department.

Williams was selected first overall by the Houston Texans in the 2006 NFL Draft and played college football at North Carolina State University.

Back in December of 2010, Williams was placed on the injured reserve for the remainder of the season with an inflamed hernia by The Texans.

Despite his struggles with injuries,  he still ranked in the top third in the NFL in sacks with 8.5 through 13 games.
