After three seasons of injuries and disappointing results, the Cardinals last week released running back Ryan Williams. Only a few days later, though, the Cowboys signed him, giving his career a much-needed boost.

After missing his entire rookie season in 2011 with a knee injury, the Cardinals 2011 second-round draft pick only managed to play five games in 2012, averaging 2.8 yards per carry on 58 attempts. Last season, he didn't make the gameday roster a single time, and with the Cardinals looking to work Andre Ellington as the No. 1 running back, Williams was deemed expendable.
Though Arizona coach Bruce Arians said in February that Williams would have a chance to make the roster, he also said this.
"There's always a door number two," Arians said. "If door number two is better when we look behind it, he could be gone. But he can play."
And maybe, just maybe Williams has a chance to succeed.
Ryan Williams had good workout and was signed by Dallas. Worth a shot because Joseph Randle didn't look very good when he played last year.— FantasyGuru.com (@Fantasy_Guru) May 18, 2014
