After passing on running backs in the draft, the need is more desperate than ever. St. Louis figures to invest in a third down back in free agency, with Carnell “Cadillac” Williams being the latest name floated.
Pro Football Weekly writes that Williams is “generating some behind-the-scenes buzz” at Rams Park. Their source believes Williams would be a perfect fit, especially since he accepted a backup role in Tampa.
Williams is excellent in the passing game as a blocker and receiver, so he’d make a lot of sense for the Rams at the right price. (He also hasn’t averaged four yards-per-carry since his rookie season, so he won’t get a starting job elsewhere.)
