Maxx Williams – TE
We’re now six games into the season, meaning players who start the year on the PUP list are able to be added to the active roster.
For the Vikings, tight end David Morgan is the only player on the team’s PUP list this season. Minnesota now has five weeks to decide if they want to activate Morgan, who has been dealing with a knee injury.
If he ends up having to sit out the remainder of the season, the Vikings may look into finding another tight end to take his spot on the team. Maxx Williams would be an affordable option for Minnesota to consider.
Williams, a former Minnesota Golden Gopher, is currently a member of the Arizona Cardinals and he’s appeared in all of their games this year. The former second-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens has seven catches for 98 yards and one touchdown during the Cardinals’ first six matchups this season.
Williams’ career in the NFL hasn’t exactly gone as planned but at 25-years-old, he still has time to evolve into a solid tight end for someone. At 6-foot-4, 252 pounds, he’s got the tools necessary to be successful, he might just need to find the right system that can utilize his abilities properly.
Kyle Rudolph is not guaranteed to be around for the 2020 season and Williams could potentially be a good, young option for the Vikings to replace him with.
