Obviously, Preston Williams is on the thinnest of ices with the team. He’s been inactive for a slew of games for disciplinary reasons and only has four catches for 67 yards. Pretty disgusting numbers for a guy who we all had high hopes for after his rookie year and his sophomore season when he was injured for the second half of the year. I like many thought that this was a make-or-break season for Williams. Sadly for whatever reason, it appears he doesn’t too much care about what happens given by him not being able to play for a very injury-depleted receiver room because he couldn’t follow some rules.
With all of this, he started last week against the Ravens and the Dolphins still tried getting him the ball. It didn’t amount to much, but they still went his way. I think they think like I do that Preston Williams can be more than just a viable receiver in this league. You can’t teach 6’5 with decent speed and Williams has that.
On Sunday, Williams plays a team that he has done well against in the past. The receiver unit is still a weak one where a guy like Williams can go in and lock a position down if, and it’s a big if he decides that he is going to put all his focus into it. If he doesn’t, well then I imagine he is a guy that has around a 50/50 chance of sticking around come next year. Yes, he’ll get picked up by somebody but he’s a guy that I believe is starting to run out of chances. I hope he picks up his game because pairing him with Waddle, and Gesicki is a decent start to a pass-catching room.
