    Cadillac Williams played much better as a backup last year(stats inside)

    I know a lot of people are very happy with the Cadillac signing and there are also quite a lot of people questioning it(and would of preferred Ricky, snelling or Harrison). Cadillac has always been injury prone and his ypc has been declining heavily the last couple years. My brother is a big Bucs fan so I heard him lament over Cadillac numerous times last year. All of that aside he played very, very well as a back up last year.

    His numbers as a starter and backup

    Gms rsh yds avg tds rec yds avg tds
    Starter 5 76 190 2.5 0 15 127 8.5 0
    Backup 11 49 247 5.0 2 31 228 7.4 1

    whether he'll put up numbers this good again who knows but he was very impressive as a third down back(he's also a pretty good blocker) and I thought it was encouraging how well he played. If he can put up 5-8 carries at 4 or 5 yards per carry and catch 3 or 4 balls a game out of the backfield(picking up 8 ypc) I will be very happy. Especially with Norwood getting a few carries and receptions also.

    I'm guessing that Cadillac sees sparse regular action unless Jackson gets hurt. You'll likely see him on third down picking up the blitz. It wouldn't surprise me to see him finish the season with more receptions than carries.

    I think you'll see Norwood get more carries as a change of pace guy.

    I would like to see Cadillac get a lot of touches but it wont happen. Maybe touch the ball 6 times a game. Norwood including KR/PuntR maybe 8. Carrying and catching Norwood shouldn't get much, his majority will come from special teams I believe.

    He did good his rookie year. Shame he couldn't stay healthy.
