Tyler Clutts or Ryan Williams, does Dallas need a FB?

Now that week 1 is in the books, veteran salaries are not guaranteed. There are bound to be some moves around the NFL – Champ Bailey I’m sure being one – but what moves might the Cowboys make? The one move I want to see, and this feeling has stayed with me since the day of final cuts, is the elevation to the 53-man roster of Ryan... -- Click the title above to read the full...

WATCH: Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams Absolutely Trucks Over Ravens Defensive Back

DeMarco Murray may be the incumbent for the Cowboys, but lets be real here folks--he's okay at best and injured way too often. The 'Boys need another option--and may have found it in former Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams. After an injury-filled and unsuccessful tenure in Arizona he must know that his window is closing. If he doesn't do something to make...

Cowboys’ backfield battle between Randle and Williams heating up.

The battle for the number three running back spot in Dallas just got really interesting after last Thursday’s game with the San Diego Chargers. Joseph Randle got the start at running back with the first team offense and he impressed me early. He looked noticeably quicker so far than he did at any point in 2013. Ryan Williams got most of the second half work and to me, he finally...

Scouting Report: New Dallas Cowboys’ Running Back Ryan Williams

I love running backs. I love scouting them. I love watching them play. But I also realize that their “value” has decreased in recent years. In back to back years, a running back did not go in the first round. I’ve heard and seen many NFL pundits discuss how running backs are becoming a dying breed in the NFL. I couldn’t disagree more with that statement. We just saw a run...

Arizona Cardinals GM: Ryan Williams cut because he 'was outperformed'

Ryan Williams' unlucky career as an Arizona Cardinal came to an end last week when the team released him. The move was at the same time both surprising and expected. On one hand, Williams was a second-round pick in 2011 who had shown flashes of being a quality running back. On the other hand, though, he had battled injuries his first two seasons and was inactive for all 16 games...
