Veteran running back Ricky Williams has found a home with the Baltimore Ravens. The coaches there love him because he’s been very professional and quiet. He’s been the first player out at practice every day, and he came to work in fantastic shape.
What’s more - his pass protection has been outstanding. Williams looks like an ideal role player who can get five to 10 carries a game, including some short yardage work. Eventually, though, he could be pushed by promising rookie Anthony Allen.
Ray Rice owners don't want to hear about Williams getting short yardage work. It remains to be seen if that will actually happen, but pairing Rice with Williams isn't a bad idea.
