What’s the Future Hold for Cadillac Williams?

With new running back Derrick Ward in the house with the Bucs, there has been plenty of talk already about the future, or possible lack of a future for running back Cadillac Williams. For the second time in his career, Williams will try to come back from a major injury, and you can sense that the team is not convinced that he can do it.

Bucs GM Mark Dominik said the team would like to have Williams back, but it is going to depend on the rehab and how long it takes for Williams to come back from his torn patellar tendon. “We’ll find a role for a guy like Carnell if it makes sense, Dominik said. It would be quite a story for Williams to be able to make it back and have a big impact on the Bucs in 2009 or beyond.

    I like Caddy, but I think he’s blown too many tires.

    I like Caddy as a slot receiver, change up running back, and a special teams guy. A year in varied roles would allow his injured knees an entire year to become strong again. Not needing to carry the load, I feel he could add value as someone always needing to be accounted for by other teams. Or if teams underestimate him, there may be some big plays there. PS- Slot receivers are usually hit before they get a chance to run, so re injuring the knee would be limited. Note he still was fast after the 1st injury that was much worse.

    ive always liked caddy,and if we could get him back to his rookie of the year kind of numbers, i would be happy. i just dont see that happening. with ward,we can use caddy as a third down back, maybe we can run 2 back with them.i would like to see him thrive, even if he is not a buc.
