Re: Saints sign RB Jonathan Williams

Bottom Line
Has enough size, heart and talent to be a three-down running back, but was a proven commodity as a fresh runner in a committee approach at Arkansas. Williams is one of the more creative runners in tight quarters that you will find in this draft, but teams won't have to sacrifice too much toughness in order to take advantage of his slashing style. Williams' physicals at the combine will be huge since teams are justifiably concerned when the long term health of running backs who sustain foot injuries.

I don't think he does.
He's a big runningback with plowing capabilities and can make fast decisions.
It was kind of a shock he was cut at the end of preseason by the Bills.
The reason he was cut was they drafted Williams in 2015 and the Bills had a stable of runningbacks in the backfield.

It's hard to tell what Sean Payton is up to.

That's the only thing that makes sense.

Don't think so at all. The RB coach is familiar with him. Coached him. The Saints needs a 4th RB on the roster. Especially, with the new approach to the running game. Once familiar with the system, I wouldn't be surprised if he takes the 3rd spot on the dept chart. The Saints have others to cover kicks. Lasco just excelled at it.
