    Patience pays off once again!! (Re: Cadillac Williams)

    According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Rams are finalizing a deal with former Tampa Bay RB Cadillac Williams today.

    One of the better 3rd down RB's to come here to join Norwood and Jackson....Im already frightened for other teams.

    I've moved this to Draft & FA pending an actual signing.

    I think the combination of Williams and Norwood would be a significant upgrade over what Jackson had behind him in recent years. Williams did a good job in the #2 role during the second half of last season, averaging 6.4 yards per carry in the last 8 games as LaGarrette Blount's backup.

    From rotoworld:
    The Rams are closing in on a deal with free agent Cadillac Williams, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
    While the signing is not a lock, the Rams wisely aren't stopping their search for a backup running back when they signed Jerious Norwood Tuesday. While Williams and his bionic knees certainly aren't explosive, he'd be capable of carrying a decent-sized workload if Steven Jackson were to go down. Caddy could also end up spelling Jackson on some third downs, but would barely get any early-down reps as long as S-Jax is healthy.

    This would cap off an impressive week of work by Devaney.

    Bad news, though still room for optimism. Per Toni Softli (AV's Favourtie) : " Rams and league sources say while the talks continue with Cadillac Williams they are not even close to getting a deal done. "

    I still fully expect the Rams to sign him by the end of today, and if we do, damn this free agency was unbelievable.

    The Cadillac signing would certainly make me feel better about the Norwood signing. As Av said, those two additions would represent a colossal upgrade over the Rams' backfield depth since... heck, probably since Faulk was on this team.

    What is it with Softli? Does he ever laud the Rams any more for anything? The Redzone reports this:

    Report: Cadillac Williams finalizing a deal with the Rams
    Aug 3, 9:13:54 AM


    Rick Stroud of the St.Petersburg Times reports running back Cadillac Williams will be finalizing deal with Rams today, per Chris Mortensen, ESPN.

    It sounds like the Mortensen report may have been a bit premature.

    Here's a bit more even-handed report from Jim Thomas (via Twitter):

    Cadillac to rams not the done deal that some seem to be portraying, but both sides remain interested in making it happen.

    Good deal for both sides, i think it will get done today, but $compensation$ is always the factor that gives common sense are right royal shagging.

    That's excellent Jackson, Cadillac and Norwood should make for a good trio and hopefully will help keep Jackson fresh late into games. Devaney seems to have hit every major target this offseason.

    AMAZING!!!!!! signing. This guy is a beast. I remember him in Tampa before he got injured. This guy is not that old and can still contribute. Very good signing by Billy D. Jackson is of course the Rams workhorse, but both Cadillac Williams and Jerious Norwood can contribute. What a backfield. That is amazing. I am so happy with the rescent aquisitions.

    Go Rams 2011
