Summary

Williams tested the free agent market as a Restricted Free Agent, but found no takers and had to come back to the Miami Dolphins to sign a tender he had steadfastly refused to sign not long before. The team wants to get second-year back Kenyan Drake in the mix more, and Jay Ajayi looks like he isn't going anywhere, so Williams is in a tough spot. He hasn't shown much to separate himself from the rest of the backups, and he doesn't bring any unique skill to the table, like Drake does. However, while Drake could fulfill a change of pace role, we don't know if he's up to the task. If Williams can perform well in camp and Drake does not, Williams remains the number two and has a chance to produce when Ajayi needs a breather or gets hurt. (May 22)

Dolphins | Damien Williams works with first team (Wed Aug 2, 07:55 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams lined up with the first-team offense during practice Wednesday, Aug. 2, in place of RB Jay Ajayi (concussion).

Our View: Williams might not be able to handle 20 carries a game, but he would be the most valuable back in this offense if Jay Ajayi went down for a long stretch. The team could also sign a veteran for depth in that event and Kenyan Drake will have a role, so Williams shouldn't be considered a true handcuff.
