Steelers With Interest in Bengals FS Williams?


As free agency gets closer, the Steelers are reportedly eyeing a player that might be able to help their secondary in 2008.  The Dayton Daily News is reporting that the Steelers may be taking a hard look at Bengals FS Madieu Williams.  The 26-year-old has been with Cincy for four seasons, joining them after being drafted in the second round of the 2004 draft.  Williams is set to become an unrestricted free agent when the free agency signing period begins in late this month.

Last season Williams had 74 tackles, one forced fumble, and two picks.  The paper reports that Williams drew great reviews from a top Steeler scout during the 04 draft and the interest is believed to still be there, as the team needs secondary help as they get set for free agency and the draft.  Williams is 6-foot-1 and weighs in at 203 pounds.  He has played in 49 career games, has nine picks and one TD.

    I think that Williams is a great option for the Steelers. I dont know if Anthony Smith is starter material after last year, and Ryan Clark could be a question mark. I would rather see Smith as Troy’s back-up and let Williams and Clark battle for the top spot. I can see Clark becoming Tomlin’s “Mike Logan” where he will always make the team and get some playing time, but no longer an every Sunday starter.Our secondary needs more picks, plain and simple. I would like to see Mcfadden get a chance to get on the field more often too.The other kid Gay looks like he has a nose for the ball, but may be undersized. I would rather the Steelers look for OL help then secondary help, but improvement at any position is warranted.
