Yeah. But is he versatile? rsmith says he isn’t.
I asked what can he give you that MI can't?
I also mentioned that I would personally rather see more of a scat back type since we already have MI, Smith & Washington.

Youth. 5 years is a world of difference in age when you are talking NFL RBs. And why can't both be around? If AK is suspended, you'd be well served to have 2 other backs who you know can play.

Believe it or not D Williams has shown to be a very good all around back in his time in the NFL.

Very Solid RB, would instantly make our RB room pretty good. He has good hands as well.

He's the best RB left on the market, so it's either him or nobody at this point
Depends on what you mean by nothing. There are guys who you can pick up off the streets to play a role for a short period of time. Murray, for example, could do the job. But agreed that everyone is a step down from Williams. Williams is the only one that could compete with Ingram.

..guy from area spotted in area...

;)
Salty much?

He is NOT from New Orleans. He is from Marrero. Him making a tweet about being in New Orleans, is seemingly curious. This is the only time I have seen him tweeting about being in New Orleans. Is there something related to the Saints? Or is he just visiting with friends? I just do not get your snarky reply.

It was a lighthearted comment. Most seemed to get that. Not surprisingly, you did not.

He was born in Marrero and played high school ball at John Ehret. He's from "the area."

Nice deflection from being snarky. Trying to be a smarta$$. And MOST SEEMED TO GET IT. So that validates your snarky reply? Typical of you.

Now why you gotta be like that? This is the off season. Plus some dude posted pics of Coach O in this thread that are as gross as watching John C. Reilly as Jerry Buss hitting on everything half his age with a skirt in Winning Time. Believing that a guy who COULD be a decent signing is posting pics of a Super Dome ramp means something is a nice thought to filter in between those bad thoughts.

I mean, it's not like I'm against the guy or something. Dream away!

If he walks through the front door of Saints HQ, I hope somebody posts the pics.

Seriously? Would the east bank suburbs have qualified for you or did it technically have to be "New Orleans"? And to top it off, the post you quoted spoke in terms of "area". Marrero is adjacent to New Orleans proper. I'd say that is in the area.

Personally i'd rather see a different type of back seeing as we already have a back that can do what he can on the roster. Let's say MI was gone, then i'd be ok with signing him.

We don't need him to be a burner... just hit the hole and get what you can out of the run. Aside from Kamara every other RB we have are pretty much the same. Ingram ran a 4.5 but I doubt he still runs a 4.5. Tony ones ran a 4.6, and Abram Smith has gotta be in the 4.6 range. Dwayne Washington ran a 4.4 and gets no snaps. Point is if you can get yards... we can use you.
Yep! Last year Williams averaged Jus under 4 ypc. Wen I watched Darrel’s vids, one of the first things I saw was that he is physical n runs HARD!

Dennis Allen ain’t been sleep either! His first new hire was O line Coach Marrone. He drafted LT Trevor Penning in the 1st rd. If the O line stays fairly healthy, I think ur gonna see a nastier, more physical group this season! Darrel would be a nice fit behind a line like dat!
