He plays tackle yes?

Is he any better than Demetress Bell or King Dunlap? Laughing

I do believe his most recent position was OG but a Bear fan could answer it more certainly.

Chargers might throw a claim in. He's not any good, but Gaither is injured and Harris is really struggling.

He's a free-agent, he isn't on the waiver wire.

Then maybe they sign him. I don't think he is any good at all, but HArris is struggling mightily.

The fact that he looked worse than Webb in the preseason and failed to make an impression at multiple spots on the O line says it all.

He was cut from the Bears. You are asking a man dying of thirst if he has any gatorade.

Eh I think he had some flashes in games. 2 years ago he really handled Jared Allen to let us get a victory over the Vikes during their NFC run.

I think a change of scenery would help him, hes really not as bad as people think. Mike Tice just seemed to hate him from the start and never gave him a fair shot.

Yes. See Jeroemy Clary.


I can see the Chargers bringing Williams in for at least a tryout.

Just some clarification - drafted as a LT, also played RT but most recent played guard. Never great at any of them.

Is somewhat attractive because of experience playing multiple positions but not a great starting option.

Pretty sure he was playing some center too... failed in all the positions despite been drafted 14th overall, too bad.

Most dissapointingly, he was given an opportunity this offseason to compete for the LT job, where he played well for two games in 2009 and could be considered his most natural position. However, he sucked in preseason games and by all accounts in practice too, to where J'Marcus basically won the job way earlier than it was supposed to be decided. He just seemed to regress this offseason, and he wasn't that good to begin with.

Oh, and:

Looks like he'll have another job pretty soon. He does have experience across the line and has looked decent at times.
