The frustration level that the Ravens have had Williams is off the charts. Williams is a big bodied tight end that should be able to make plays downfield, the plays have just seldom come. He seems to get hurt constantly and when he’s on the field he under performs. Williams got beat out by Dennis Pitta in 2016. Pitta was coming off back to back hip injuries. In 2017 Williams didn’t do much of anything and the ageing Ben Watson was the main tight end.
The Ravens drafted Williams in the second round, but like with Correa, it’s just time to cut their losses. Williams is an under-performing, unreliable target who can’t stay healthy. Nick Boyle will be the blocking tight end. Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews will run the show at the position. Williams is completely unneeded.
In three season he has 47 receptions for less than 400 yards. He’s played in 14 games and he has only started seven times. Is there an argument for keeping Williams? I really don’t think that there is. Williams looks the part, that’s about all you can give him credit for.
