Now a free agent, Williams suddenly finds himself in a crowded Panther backfield with Jonathon Stewart and 2010 breakout player Mike Goodson.
Green Bay, on the other hand, won a super bowl with third-string running back James Starks taking the hand offs. While the Packers may not need a playmaking running back after seeing what they just did without one, they still squeaked into the playoffs with a 10-6 regular season record.
A potential 1,000 yard rusher will help them sustain their offense and give them a great chance of doing something a team hasn’t done since 2004, win back-to-back super bowls.
Williams fits in perfect with Green Bay. He’s a good receiver out of the backfield and can run those screen passes we all know the Packers love to run. His speed and agility would complement Ryan Grant’s tough, up the gut running style.
The Packers don’t have many weaknesses, but a playmaking running back is definitely one of them.
