The first nine games of Jameson Williams’ career in Detroit have not gone anywhere near as well as hoped. “Jamo” has five catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns in those nine games.
The man throwing the ball to Williams, Lions QB Jared Goff, doesn’t seem worried about the early lack of productivity or connection between the two. Goff appreciates the work Williams is putting in to help turn those meager numbers into something much bigger and better.
“It’s so early in his career and his development,” Goff said of Williams this week. “I just keep working, keep working with him, building that trust with him and getting on the same page. He’s working his tail off at practice and has done a great job trying to get better every week and I expect to see his development continue.”
They’ve struggled to connect on the deeper throws thus far, but Goff doesn’t see Williams’ blazing speed as a problem.
“Yeah, that was, I think, early on trying – figuring that out. I think I’m past that now where I know his speed and we’ve got a good rapport in that way. But yeah, it’s just getting on the same page with everything and again, it’s just so early in his career and his development that it’s just reps, it’s just reps, it’s just time and it’s a matter of time before everything starts to click for him in our offense.”
Monday night’s game against the Raiders provides Goff a great chance to get more in sync with Williams.
