But would the Jaguars even want him?

Free agent running back DeAngelo Williams was recently on Adam Schefter’s new podcast “Know You From Adam” and said that while he plans on playing in the NFL this season, it won’t be with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

During the show, the 34-year-old veteran said that while he wants to still play football there are four teams he would not join.

One was the Carolina Panthers, who made Williams a first-round pick in 2006. Williams blamed the way he was released as why he wouldn’t return.

Williams then mentioned the Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars and said their consistent losing seasons was why he wouldn’t come here.

"I can't think of anything positive about that organization outside of the fact that they have pools in the stadium," Williams said.

Then Williams finished with the Dallas Cowboys, saying he couldn’t do that as a childhood fan of the San Francisco 49ers.

What do you think? Do you blame a veteran free agent like Williams for not coming to Jacksonville after a decade of losing seasons? Would he even fit on a team like the Jaguars who have their one-two punch in Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory squared away? After all, Williams only started four games last year with 461 yards from scrimmage.
