From RotoWorld yesterday:
Profootballtalk.com reports that there are “rumors” in Mobile, Alabama that Carnell Williams’ career is in jeopardy following his torn patellar tendon last season.
Keep in mind these are just rumors, not a report. But this goes along with a Yahoo report last October, and a note from the St. Petersburg Times last week that Williams may not help the Bucs in 2008. This makes it more important that the Bucs re-sign Earnest Graham. They will probably add another decent back, possibly in the draft.
While it is true that not everything from ProFootballTalk.com is reliable information, there are many football people who feared Williams’ injury was career-threatening when it happened. It would be nice to see Cadillac make a return to the NFL, but the odds are against him having a long, successful career at this point.
