While more than a few players around the league are finding (various) reasons not to participate in voluntary practices, Cadillac Williams isn’t among them. Williams is relishing the fact that he’s healthy during the offseason for the first time since 2007, and he has set some high goals for himself.
Here are links to a couple of different stories on the Buccaneers running back:
- Williams told the team’s official site that he feels like he’s back, and his personal goals are to “dominate, compete and be one of the best backs in this league.”
- Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times writes that the doubts in Williams’ mind are gone after he played 16 games last season, and by all accounts, he hasn’t missed a practice all offseason, a fact of which offensive coordinator Greg Olson has taken note.
Williams has played the role of feel-good story several times in his career, but it’s difficult not to pull for someone who has overcome so much. With Earnest Graham now in the fullback role and Williams running with the first team ahead of Derrick Ward, he has every reason to be optimistic.
