LeSean McCoy a "Great Addition" for Chiefs, says Fellow RB Damien Williams
Damien Williams finished the preseason as the Chiefs' unquestioned starter at running back, but all that changed last weekend with the addition of LeSean McCoy, who played the first four years of his career in Philadelphia with head coach Andy Reid.
Yet Williams sees McCoy as a "great addition," according to [Sports Radio 810 WHB](“With him being a vet and being already behind Andy, me being a vet and this is my second year behind Andy -- I feel like us two alone, me picking his head, the younger guys picking our heads, I feel like it's going to be a great system,” Williams said.).
“With him being a vet and being already behind Andy, me being a vet and this is my second year behind Andy -- I feel like us two alone, me picking his head, the younger guys picking our heads, I feel like it's going to be a great system,” Williams said.
Reid on Monday said he views both Williams and McCoy as starters.
“The way we'll work that situation is that we're lucky to have Damien here who we consider a starter as we do Shady,” Reid said. “I think it's a great situation to be in, really for both of them and the football team. They don't know each other, but they'll get to know each other here and I know they will work well together.”
Offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said Williams handled the news of McCoy's arrival like a pro.
“One thing that we take a lot of pride in here is that our guys understand the big picture,” Bieniemy said. “This ain't about the individual. This is about the organization and the team. We always want to concentrate and do what is best for us that's going to give us the best opportunity to win every Sunday.”
