Could Roy Williams Help The Bucs?September 26th, 2008
Joe has written several times that Joey Galloway is needed if the Bucs are to go far because the wide receiver corps is the weakest group on the Bucs.
Well, Galloway has been dinged up all year, from the preseason and now into the regular season. Plus, he’s old. Joe doesn’t hate Galloway for missing valuable time. It happens to the best of players. Father Time makes exceptions for no one.
Who knows when Galloway will return and for how long will he remain healthy?
So far, Antonio Bryant has played well. That’s all of one game. Michael Clayton and Maurice Stovall are more efficient at dropping passes than anything else.
Could Roy Williams make a difference?
Per ProFootballTalk.com, now that the Lions have new leadership, it seems the team is open-minded to any and all deals.
Williams, per the lord of PFT.com Mike Florio, is in the final year of his contract. Does anyone believe he will stay in Detroit and possibly languish with a losing team the rest of his career? Surely the Lions would be interested in obtaining something for him before he leaves them empty-handed.
Would it be in the Bucs best interest to possibly rent Williams, maybe give up a third round pick for him and take the chance of resigning him in the offseason?
Joe wouldn’t be opposed to such a move. Unless Clayton and Stovall demonstrate otherwise, and one game (Chicago) does not a season make, the Bucs badly need a healthy Galloway.
Or another receiver to pick up the slack.
