What Happens if DeAngelo Williams is Cut or Traded?

73 posts in this topic

I just had a thought pop into my head. What will we do if we lose DeAngelo? Draft a RB, sign one to compete with Tauren Poole for backing up Jonathan? Someone tell me your thoughts. I'm hoping for Kenjon Barner personally.

really don't need anybody, unless a cheap-ass free agent that could complement the two guys we have now is a better option than what we have a third-string.

spend money and resources on fixing the offensive line the backs we keep will look better, and so will our quarterback, and all three phases will feed off of each other like the symbiosis you expect to see on a winning football team.

draft one in the 6th or 5th at highest. We need to stop putting so much towards running backs we dont use. We would be fine without DWill where were at since we do have Tolbert

I wouldn't draft one. Obviously Gio Bernard is the best in this draft, but he'll go in the first or early second. If we lose D and we want another RB, go with Poole & Stew.

Who cares? He taking up big bucks. He is not used right, let him win a ring.

Lots of truth in this comment.

If we have a better Offensive Coordinator next year, it will be different. Who knows, we might ACTUALLY use our RB's! But yes we do need to fix our OL.

Or maybe we keep him and a new coach has the ability to use him correctly?

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
