The #Bears have agreed to terms on a 1-year deal with former Super Bowl hero RB Damien Williams, source said. Lots of familiarity, as he knows Matt Nagy’s offense from KC, and he was OC Bill Lazor with the #Dolphins.
Williams' arrival along with the return of Tarik Cohen spells trouble for David Montgomery, who saw his usage spike with Cohen out and no other viable options on the roster. He saw 16.7 touches per game as a rookie versus 20.1 last season. The increase was driven by more usage as a receiver (1.6 receptions per game in 2019 versus 3.6 in 2020). Cohen and/or Williams are likely to steal that passing game work.
