We’ve been waiting for Williams to show what he can do. Last season, his rookie season in the NFL, he spent most of it inactive.
Williams had a tough time impressing then coach Bruce Arians. Now in his second season he appears to have gotten the message.
His three receptions for 44-yards in the victory at New Orleans on Friday night was by far the best performance he has had. His hands and speed both worked well.
Now we need to see him follow that up with another performance just like it. Then we’d love to see it in action once the regular season commences.
Right now he has a legitimate shot at being the number two or three receiver. There are some others who will have a say about that but now it becomes about consistency, not whether he can get the job done or not.
He will likely get some more good looks against the Dallas Cowboys next week and will remain to be seen what kind of action he will see against the Denver Broncos in the last preseason game.
