Arizona Cardinals’ Darrel Williams aims for key role at running back


Darrel Williams was the Kansas City Chiefs’ leading rusher last season and amassed more than 1,000 yards of rushing and receiving yards combined. Yet according to him, Kansas City didn’t make him an offer and allowed him to become a free agent.

He was asked about facing his old team in Week 1 of the regular season, when Williams, now an Arizona Cardinal after signing a one-year contract in the offseason, joins his new teammates in the regular season opener at home against Kansas City on Sept . 11.

“Really exciting. I can’t wait,” Williams said this week at training camp. He did not take part in the team’s practice on Saturday at State Farm Stadium.

Williams said he signed with the Cardinals because he likes the way the team uses its running backs. The Cardinals run the ball, but also like the backs to be able to catch the ball out of the backfield and make plays in the passing game.
