But I still believe that they should be able to get a 4th for him which beats the jab in the eye with a sharp stick they get otherwise. I mean the Broncos blew a 3rd on Clarrett and look how many chances Lawrence Phillips got. It's about trying to recoup something for the investment they have in the guy, someone surely will give a 4th for Ricky Williams.
Also he would still be good insurance if the rookie goes down this year and might play himself into a position to bring a better trade. He is a rare talent at RB to be sure...I guess we will just have to wait and see.
If I were a General Manager, I would not give up anything for him.
Talented or not, the risk is terrible. You risk a public relations nightmare and an immediate distraction from the second he signs his contract. And given Williams' unstable mental history, how long would you wager that he stays away from the happy grass when the media are dogging him?
I just don't see any way he can just step back into the league and not cause a major distruption on whatever team he goes to.
