NFL Free Agent Signings: Why Chicago Bears Should Give Pat Williams a Call
There is a spot open on every NFL roster for a 6’3”, 317 pound run-stuffing defensive tackle (by the way, there’s no way Pat Williams doesn’t weigh more than that). The Chicago Bears could use another body on their interior defensive line. Why not add the guy that’s pushed around their own offensive lineman for the last half-dozen years?
Williams is a free agent and isn’t interested in returning to the Minnesota Vikings; he wants to play for a contender. At 38-years old and still without a championship ring, that’s understandable. The Bears are a championship contender and with their need at defensive tackle, Williams would be the perfect fit.
Chicago signed Amobi Okoye and drafted Stephen Paea this offseason, but Okoye isn’t a dominant run stuffer and being just a rookie, the Bears can’t expect Paea to be able to start from day one. They were the second best run defense in the league last season, but with Williams in the starting lineup, they could be number one. Putting the massive tackle in front of Brian Urlacher would help keep offensive lineman off of the Pro Bowl linebacker freeing him up to make more plays.
The Bears have a ton of competition just to make it out of the conference this season, the Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints and of course their bitter rival, the Green bay Packers. They need to add as much talent as possible to gain an edge over their opponents. Williams along with Lofa Tatupu and Kevlin Hayden, two other players Chicago has shown interest in would be huge additions to an already stacked Bears defense and would take them to an elite level.
Roy Williams, Marion Barber, Amobi Okoye and Vernon Gholston were all solid pickups, but if the Bears want to make it out of the NFC alive, they may have to make at least one more bold move.
