DeAngelo Williams Anyone?

DeAngelo Williams, the 27 year old running back from the 1-12 Carolina Panthers is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.  Since his season ending injury, former 1st round pick Jonathan Stewart and second year speed racer Mike Goodson have combined to pick up the slack.  They form a pretty dynamic duo for an otherwise anemic Panthers offense. 

 

If a collective bargaining agreement is reached in 2011, and the salary cap returns, can the Panthers afford to keep all three running backs, especially in Williams contract year, where he is sure to demand a pretty penny from the front office. 

 

The up-side to DeAngelo Williams, besides him being only 27, is that is is a great multi-dimensional player.  He can burn you to the outside with speed, he can gash you up the middle with power, and he can present a true mismatch to linebackers out of the backfield as a receiver.

 

For the Washington Redskins, who truely do not have an identity on offense, could Williams be a good fit?  We have two power backs in Keeland Willians and Ryan Torain, and a unproven and untested guy in James Davis.  Being that none of our current back are big name, high priced guys, I don't see it as a problem keeping two of the three we currently have on the roster, and adding a guy, say, like DeAngelo Williams to fill our every-down back role.

 

Williams would surely add a spark to an offense that has struggled this year, and could take the place of an often injured, and run down Clinton Portis.  Plus, we are not giving up any draft picks to aquire him; only good ole' Danny Boys hard earned money.
