Brandon Williams

So he doesn’t work out at cornerback.  Some, including yours truly, wonder why he still has a roster spot as well.

Turns out the Cardinals like him on special teams.  Sure, I get it.  Not everyone is meant to be a special teams star.  Williams however was as bad as he was at corner in preseason and in previous seasons, was considered that good on special teams.

Now, that has to be questioned as well.  Maybe he does good things on cover teams but as far as returning footballs?  Yeah, I’d say let’s nix that plan moving forward.

Again, I get it.  He can run with the ball.  However he doesn’t seem to always make the best decisions.

Pointing to the game again this past Thursday, he struggled in the return game.  He averaged just 15 yards per return.  Three times he took the ball out of the end zone and failed to make it back to the 25, two of those instances Williams didn’t make it to the 15.

Next. Offensive guru could be Cardinals savior. dark

There were a couple of times where he got the ball just outside the end zone, so he had to run it, but even then he couldn’t get himself to the 25.  Again we ask is there someone better for the job?  I’m not sure but they’d better figure it out soon.
