For about five years there, the backfield of the Tampa Bay Bucs belonged to Cadillac Williams. But LeGarrette Blount came along and sort of claimed it last season. Now Cadillac is a free agent, and his position in the running back corp is a bit of a question mark. But according to Anwar Richardson of Tampa Bay Online, Cadillac wants to come back to the Bucs.
"Tampa is a very special place for me," Williams said. "This is the team that drafted me. It's a team that has been through the good times and bad times with me. At the lowest point of my career, the organization was definitely behind me.
Cadillac certainly has had his ups and downs. But he probably won't be too expensive, and he already fits in well with the team. In a league when you need a second running back who can be effective, the Buc could do a lot worse than Cadillac Williams.
The only other back on the Bucs depth chart is Kregg Lumpkin, and I think the Bucs would probably be a lot happier to have Cadillac carrying the ball. They also drafted Allen Bradford out of USC in the sixth round of the recent NFL Draft, but you can never expect a rookie, particularly one taken that late, to produce very much in his first year. We'll be following any developments with Cadillac in free agency, if that ever happens, in this stream.
