St. Louis Rams finalizing a deal with RB Cadillac Williams

The St. Louis Rams will add a third member to their backfield today. According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Rams are finalizing a deal with former Tampa Bay RB Cadillac Williams today. That gives the Rams a backfield hydra, headlined by Steven Jackson, backed up by Williams and featuring an occasional appearance from Jerious Norwood

Williams will most certainly see some action on third downs. Cadillac caught a career-high 46 passes for 355 yards and a TD last year. On 125 rushing attempts, he picked up 437 yards and 2 TDs, before getting replaced by LeGarret Blount. He averaged an unimpressive 3.5 yard per carry. Williams is also a capable pass blocker, which the Rams could use from a running back. 

Williams has been talked about as an option for the Rams in the past. He will backup Steven Jackson, something that was never feasible for Norwood, given his style of play and injury history.
