Karlos Williams, a promising but controversial running back released by the Buffalo Bills last Saturday, could go to the New York Giants, according to rumors and speculations days after he was waived.
Dallas Robinson of Pro Football Rumors suggested 10 teams that could use Williams this 2016 NFL season and included the Giants as a possible landing spot for the second year player.
Robinson stated that while the “Giants have a stable of running backs available” they could use “a runner with the singular talent of Williams.”
There is one issue with Williams going to the Giants and that is dealing with the backlash of acquiring players with domestic violence issues.
The Giants has to deal with Josh Brown, who is the kicker for the team, in his involvement in a domestic violence case. Williams was involved in his own domestic violence allegations when he was playing college football for Florida State in 2014. Williams was never charged in the domestic battery cases.
New York already has Shane Vereen, Paul Perkins, Orleans Darkwa, Bobby Rainey and Andre Williams in their running crew and not all are expected to make the team.
To add to the NFL rumors, Robinson also mentioned other teams that could be interested in Williams. Possible landing spots for the running back are the Cleveland Browns, San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens, among other NFL teams.
If Williams is not picked up in the waiver wire, he will become an unrestricted free agent and can go to any other NFL team of his own choosing.
