    Rams | Team visits with M. Williams
    Wed, 31 May 2006 17:56:58 -0700

    Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the St. Louis Rams visited with free agent RB Moe Williams (Vikings) Wednesday, May 31. Rams head coach Scott Linehan knows Williams' skills from their days together in Minnesota, and now he is interested in having them in St. Louis.


    He has drug problems but as I may recall when healthy this guy has some mad talent.

          Moe is a special team ace. He runs hard and can block too.

                  Special Teams, special Teams, I think from what I have read and heard, I really think they are really looking at making our D better by getting better field position with special Teams.

                          LOL Classic!

                          While I don't believe Williams has problems with drugs, he was found guilty of some charges stemming from the Love Boat incident. There was speculation he could retire.

                          You almost get the feeling that between Jackson, Faulk (if he keeps playing), Williams, and Fisher, that Linehan wants to have a strong rotation like he had in Minnesota and, to a lesser extent, Miami. If this is the case, I wonder what Jackson really thinks about it.

                              This is an outstanding point. Everyone, Jackson included, seemed to get excited when Linehan came on board. Finally, we would have a coach that knew how to "properly" use Jackson.....right?

                              Well, if we look at Linehan's short career, he has almost always maintained a RB-by-committee. If Jackson didn't think his 254 carries last year were enough, he's not going to be happy to know that, outside of Bennett's 255 carries in 2002, no Linehan back has carried more than 207 times in a season, nearly 50 less than Jackson's carry total under Martz/Vitt.
                              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                                Nick Wagoner, of StLouisRams.com, reports there has been some talk the St. Louis Rams could turn to another former Minnesota Vikings running back, free agent RB Moe Williams (Vikings) as a potential No. 2 running back now that RB Marshall Faulk (knee) is done for the 2006 season.

                                St. Louis Rams S Aeneas Williams (neck, shoulder) aggravated a pinched nerve in his neck and shoulder area during Week 12 and underwent an MRI Tuesday, Nov. 30. Williams has dealt with this problem for much of the season, but he may be forced to sit out a game or two due to the aggravation of it.

                                Rams Notebook: Williams relishes his fresh start with the Rams

                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                                08/04/2006

                                With major knee surgery and the infamous "love boat" incident behind him, former Minnesota Vikings running back Moe Williams took his first steps toward reclamation Thursday at Rams Park.

                                "It felt really good to be out there" at practice, said Williams, a Columbus, Ga., native who played college football at Kentucky. Williams added that testing his knee in contact drills bolstered his confidence. "It did, just to get that initial thought out of your mind: Is it going to hold up?" he said.

                                After being cleared medically, Williams, a free agent, signed a one-year deal worth $810,000 on Wednesday. He is expected to compete with Tony Fisher for the No. 2 job behind Steven Jackson, although the Rams will continue to look for backfield help.

                                Williams, 32, took limited reps Thursday; coach Scott Linehan is determined to bring him along slowly.


                                "He's got to condition while we practice," Linehan said. "You don't want a guy who hasn't been through an offseason program or 10 or 11 practices to go in right away, full-speed. You've got to control that and be smart with him."

                                Williams, listed at 6 feet 1 and 205 pounds, had surgery Nov. 15 to repair cartilage in his right knee after playing in just six games last season. About a month later, he was one of four Vikings charged with indecent, lewd and disorderly conduct for what police alleged were public sex acts during an Oct. 6 boat party on Lake Minnetonka, in suburban Minneapolis.

                                Williams ultimately pleaded guilty of disorderly conduct. He was fined $300 and ordered to complete 30 hours of community service.

                                On Thursday, Williams insisted firmly that his involvement was "kind of guilt by association. I've never pretended to be a saint, but I didn't do the things that were claimed that I did. ... As far as me having problems with women, that's never been an issue and never will be an issue."

                                His mother, Maj. Marethia Williams, is a medic in the Army Reserve who, he stressed, instilled strong values in him and doesn't put up with any nonsense. "My mom was a mom and a dad," Williams said. "She's a little, short, cocky woman, and trust me, she can handle you like a dad can. ... I've never done anything to disrespect my mother."

                                Williams has spent nine of his 10 NFL seasons with Minnesota, including three when Linehan was the Vikings' offensive coordinator. The two formed a strong bond, and when Linehan expressed interest in bringing him to St. Louis, Williams said he was "honored" by the invitation.

                                "I was biting at the bit," Williams said. "Scott called me to see how I was doing, physically and mentally....
