He may be a solid locker room presence, but is he anything DJ isn't on the field?

He does handle double teams better still, but at some point, you have to give dj the chance to grow into this. Plus, it didn't make sense to keep him at that salary

Was time to move along. 

 

 

I still get so upset with what happened to Williams when he got what was supposed to be his big contract of his career. That ankle injury completely just ruined his career and he lost out on millions of dollars. Williams was quickly emerging as one of the best NTs in the game. Would love to see him back in some coaching capacity. Do we have any interior DL coach? I know we have a pass rushing specialist coach in Kiffin. Come on Shanny/Lynch, get this man a job!!

I'm with you. I'd give him a job. I guess the interior DL coach is Kocurek, with Kiffin being more of an edge guy. But if Kocurek can work with the edge guys and be good at it (making redundant and expendable, really), then having an assistant to work with the interior like Ian Williams would be great. And the guy follows the niners closely and is interested in the team, and he hates the seahawks, so I'd love to have him around the team.

Really was a sad turn of events for him, yes, @J-ALL-DAY. I hope he's doing well for himself now. 

 

Agreed with you both. I hear he's doing well as an analyst and is happy, so good to hear. But a shame how his career went.

I'm not sure he wants that job tho, he went to school with a film and video major, he's working at nbc sports Bay area as a game analyst.

Oh he is? Good for him then. I really don't watch any Niners stuff on NBC Bay Area anymore so I must have missed him doing his thing there.
