If you have been following along with the Detroit Lions so far during the 2022 season, you have certainly seen a lot of running back, Jamaal Williams. Through 17 games, Williams leads the Lions in rushing yards and touchdowns, and he has been one of the team's most consistent players so far this season. That being said, Williams is in the final year of his current contract, and it will be interesting to see if he is back for the 2023 season.
What did Jamaal Williams say about coming back to Detroit Lions in 2023?
On Thursday, Williams spoke to the media and he was asked about whether or not he wants to come back and play for the Lions in 2023.
“You said do I want to come back?” Williams told MLive.
“Hmm, let me think about it,” Williams said. “Spent two years here, I’m doing great. Do I want to come back? Do I want to come back to more blessings? Hmm, let me think about that one. That’s your answer.”
When asked if contract negotiations have begun with Lions GM Brad Holmes, Williams had a funny response.
“With who?” Williams said.
“Brad Who?” Williams quipped.
One thing is for sure, for Williams to sign a contract extension with the Detroit Lions, he would likely want a raise.
The question is, will Brad Holmes be willing to pay up to keep a running back around?
