Guess we are not going to sign DeAngelo, I remember Ridley from a few years back, nothing that special.

Let the bitching and moaning commence.

Especially if DWill gets over his Pats hate and signs with New England to replace the injured Bulkhead.

I do remember Pats ended up cutting him because he had a fumbling problem.

Unless Williams was gonna play special teams and play for league minimum he wasn't gonna come here to be the #3 rb.

Well D-Will probably wouldn't but he won't take vet minimum so they'd never sign him.

I never heard money discussed as an issue with DWill. Outside of age, why was he not resigned for 2018? They have a ton ST players. Did he spit in somebody's cereal?

DWill did say last week on Good Morning Football that he wasn't playing for league minimum.

Then don’t reply if you don’t know.

I heard him say it on WFAN that there’s no way he would play for vet minimum, so there’s that.

And the tone in which he said it suggested it was going to take a lot more than vet minimum.
I know everyone is in love with Williams, but it sounds to me that he’s just looking for one last paycheck.

Don't get your mom jeans in a wad. You run nothing here. You could have added that piece of information without being a jackass. I am not, by far, the only poster who has questioned why Williams wasn't signed.

Because we must have two backups with fumbling issues, just in case one goes down. I sctuallnlike Ridley a lot— for one thing, he’s a plus KR.

I don't know who was available, but It would be nice to have a runner who has some breakaway speed. I was hoping Karlos Williams was available and not suspended...well, he's serving a one year suspension. Horrible waste of talent.

All of a sudden I’m imagining a scenario where wee are in the AFCCG ready to go in for the winning score...only Bell has been injured.

We hand the ball to Ridley...and...

Watson did nothing with his opportunities in the regular season. They tried him in short yardage situations, and I don't recall him converting any of them. He's had 5 carries for 8 yards.
