What Would Damien Williams Being A Pat Mean?
Williams has all the tools to shine in 2017
I’ll say it: I dread the thought of Damien Williams being a New England Patriot.
The Pats brought Williams in recently offering the possibility of them matching his tender option.
Can you say Wes Welker?
I have always believed Williams could develop into a true player. He has fight, strength, burst, hands, and toughness. Sometimes he gets too cute in the hole and goes lateral when he just needs to get what’s available, and his early inconsistency was a back breaker with Philbust, but any NFL football fan could see he has always flashed skill.
Now, I’m not saying he is Ricky Williams. But, with a little more growth and some better holes, and used as Adam Gase utilized him, this Williams could make an even bigger impact on a season than he did in 2016… especially with a team like the Pats.
I can already see him killing us with screens, flats, and swing passes from Tom Brady. Then there would be the brutal B gap runs with broken tackles and draw plays for chunk yards. This is why I don’t ever want him heading north–ever!
Williams excels in pass protect and receiving
Also, for the Miami Dolphins, Williams brings hard-work ethic and toughness to the field and, as important, to the practice field. He is a leader. And while not the talent of Jay Ajayi, he plays a crucial role that Kenyan Drake hasn’t proven he can assume.
Now that Bill Belichick has brought him in, I’m starting to sweat bullets. Would it be the end of the world if he becomes a Pat? No. But, it could set up a nightmare situation where Williams has a back breaking play against Miami at a crucial moment, or at least helps the Pats stay on top of the division. And that wouldn’t be fun times… not in the least.
So let’s hope the Cheat stay away, even if it just amounts to some peace of mind. Say what you want about the Cheat, but he knows what he’s doing and far too many of his moves pan out… I just don’t want to see #26 be one more. Go Fins!!!
Editor’s Note: Patriots have signed former Dolphins Mike Gillislee which make Williams not longer of interest to them. Could be same nightmare, but different player… at least it’s not Williams.
