In case you have not yet heard, Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams has been making his rounds down at the Super Bowl, and he has been talking about anything and everything. From Aaron Rodgers‘ “darkness retreat”, to his love for anime, to playing for Dan Campbell, Williams has discussed just about everything at this point. On Wednesday, Williams spoke to Tim Twentyman and he explained why he wants to stick around in the Motor City for the foreseeable future.
Jamaal Williams wants to re-sign with Lions
While doing an interview with detroitlions.com, Williams talked about why he wants to re-sign with Detroit.
“I really just want to stay with Detroit, if I can,” Williams told detroitlions.com on radio row at the Super Bowl on Wednesday. “Really just stay here and make my mark here. I really want to finish (my career) here if I could.
“I understand it's a business and the team has to do what's best for them and I have to do what's best for me, too, but I just really want us to come to a mutual agreement and just get it done and just get back to playing football.”
When Williams originally signed with Detroit prior to the 2021 season, he received a 2-year, $6 million deal, but he has certainly earned a raise.
Williams has earned a raise
During the 2022 season, Williams did a hell of a job taking over as Detroit's lead running back, as D'Andre Swift was dealing with injuries for most of the year. Not only did Williams fill in, but he ended up rushing for over 1,000 yards, and breaking Barry Sanders' single-season touchdown record along the say. Now, he can become an unrestricted free agent, and he is sure to get a nice raise. The question is, how much will Detroit be willing to pay Williams to keep him around?
