Williams has a great chance to improve in Tennessee
At this point in the preseason, you wouldn’t expect a veteran to be able to come in and immediately contribute. That is unless he came from the exact scheme that you were already running, which is the case for Jamaal Williams.
Matt LaFleur left Tennessee this past offseason and both the Packers and the Titans benefited from that move. What better scheme for Williams to jump into that the one he just left?
It isn’t like Williams isn’t talented, LaFleur just wanted to try and find his Derrick Henry in the draft so he took A.J. Dillon in the second round. The Titans and Packers should both be able to realize that everyone benefits from a trade to get Williams over to Tennessee and out of the NFC.
The Packers don’t want a violent runner like Williams facing them with a head of steam and the Titans would love a change of pace back that could help pound away at defenses.
This gives you a chance to really take your time and develop Darryton Evans and potentially pick up a compensatory pick when Williams leaves. Since Williams is just going to be 25 when he hits free agency, there is a good chance that he would be able to get the Titans a comp pick in the 4th or 5th round.
The Titans could use more violence and 3rd down capabilities in their backfield and Williams would be an instant fit from the personality to the scheme.
