Is 2009 the Last Shot For Demetrius Williams?

Jarrett CarterAnalyst IJune 18, 2009

Three touchdowns in three years. It’s a stat line that doesn’t come close to the explosive potential of Demetrius Williams, but it is a nagging reality for a Baltimore Ravens offense that is becoming a vacation spot for rumors involving disgruntled receivers around the league.

He has the size and speed to be a number one receiver for the Ravens, but his body has cruelly betrayed him at every turn and tackle. As the Ravens prepare for the rigors of training camp, there is no guarantee that Williams will be in a position to contribute to an offense that should grow leaps and bounds in 2009.

Things got so bad last year, according to Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, they considered using safety Ed Reed on offense. The same Ed Reed who returned from a neck and shoulder injury that could’ve ended his career was this close to lining up at receiver?

Dang. Maybe Brandon Marshall wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
