  Packers | Jamaal Williams entering contract year    Tue Apr 28, 12:52 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Packers.com's Mike Spofford speculates keeping Williams long term could be difficult if Williams seeks a larger role offensively.

Footballguys view: Williams is not going to get more playing time than Aaron Jones, so he's likely to move on. We'll see if the Packers can get a long-term deal done with Jones as he's in the final year of his rookie contract as well. They did select A.J. Dillon out of Boston College in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft, and he's a two-down banger who could take over for Williams if he does move on.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams to receive raise    Fri Jan 31, 07:05 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams will have his 2020 base salary increase from $735,000 to $2.147 million because of the NFL's proven performance escalator.

Footballguys view: Williams got banged up as the season went on, but at one point was basically in a committee with Aaron Jones. He looked swifter and stronger as a runner than he had in previous years and has set up a better market for his services when he becomes a free agent next year.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams goes over 100 yards    Tue Oct 15, 12:21 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams ran 14 times for 104 yards in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions, and he had four grabs for 32 yards and a touchdown. His last run was almost a touchdown, as the Lions were going to allow him to score so they could get the ball back, but he gave himself up at the 1-yard line rather than score.

Footballguys view: Williams was strong and energetic on all of his touches and showed a renewed burst. He has forced a full blown committee after Aaron Jones had two big gaffes and should be considered an RB2/Flex against the Raiders this week.

  Packers | Davante Adams, Jamaal Williams sitting out    Thu Oct 3, 02:05 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) remained out of practice Thursday, Oct. 3, while RB Jamaal Williams (concussion) worked off to the side.

Footballguys view: Williams has a chance to return but the Packers medical staff is conservative. Aaron Jones becomes a safer play if Williams is out. Adams is almost certain to miss the game and it might not be good for his season-long outlook if he does play. We'll see if Aaron Rodgers can elevate this offense with Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison, Jake Kumerow, and Jimmy Graham as his primary targets.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (head) did not practice Monday, Sept. 30.

Footballguys view: Williams was carted off the field last Thursday night but he's doing well after being released from the hospital. It would take a minor miracle (in our opinion) for him to be out there in Week 5 against the Cowboys. That means Aaron Jones gets most all the work in the backfield against the Cowboys.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (neck) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
