Jamaal Williams just keeps on scoring touchdowns and after adding two more (so far) in the first half of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, he now owns a Detroit Lions franchise record. Heading into the Lions' Week 8 matchup against the Dolphins, Williams had six touchdowns, despite not scoring at all during his previous two games against the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots.
What Detroit Lions record did Jamaal Williams set?
By scoring two first-half touchdowns in the first half of today's game, Williams now has eight on the season, which is the most in Lions' franchise history through the first seven games of a season.
Writer suggests Detroit Lions trade RB Jamaal Williams
As far as the Lions go, Benjamin believes they should trade Jamaal Williams.
Here is Benjamin’s rationale for the Lions moving on from Williams prior to the upcoming deadline.
The former Packers veteran brings some spice to the backfield and has been getting more work with D’Andre Swift injured, but he’s on the final year of his contract for a team at least another year away from competing. There’s little reason not to shop him; he’d make a fine secondary piece for a contender.Via Cody Benjamin – CBS Sports
Will the Lions trade Jamaal Williams?
Personally, I really do not think there is much of a chance at all that the Lions trade Jamaal Williams.
First of all, with D’Andre Swift seemingly being either banged up, or not available at all on a weekly basis, Williams has been needed, and for the most part, he has shown he can get the job done.
Second, Williams is one of the leaders on the Lions, and trading him away, especially considering the Lions would not get much in return, would not send a great message to the rest of the locker room.
I get it that people are looking for articles to write about the trade deadline but this one just does not make much sense at all.
Nation, what do you think? Would you trade Jamaal Williams if you were the Lions?
