Mike Williams says he's fully recovered from hamstring injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Bills receiver Mike Williams underwent conditioning drills at the start of training camp without any reported setbacks. The newly acquired receiver told the Buffalo News on Saturday that he's fully recovered from his hamstring injury.


"I'm fully ready to go," Williams said. "I trained this whole offseason. There was really no offseason for me. I kind of had to get my leg better. I had to get back to feeling like Mike again, like my mom always tells me. Today running that conditioning test made me feel like I was Mike again."

Williams finished the season with the Bucaneers on injured reserve because of hamstring surgery and was held out of offseason training activities with his new club after the trade. Williams, who is two years removed from a 1,000-yard campaign, will fight to be the team's No. 3 receiver.

Still, coaches view Williams "as a potential instant contributor and someone who could help EJ Manuel in both the red zone and as a player with high-pointing ability on all areas of the field," the report said.

(6/20/2014) Bills receiver Mike Williams was limited in recent weeks because he was still recovering from a hamstring injury suffered last season that required surgery, reports ESPN. 

"We started off where they threw me out there and I was just going every rep and then the leg starting getting to me and then they started holding me back more and more," Williams said. "But then I started getting my legs back and giving me more reps."

When Williams is healthy by training camp, he remains the favorite to earn reps alongside Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and the first-team offense.

Mike Williams pleads not guilty to trespass charges


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/25/2014) Buccaneers receiver Mike Williams has entered a written plea of not guilty and been granted an arraignment waiver in a case in which he faces misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief and trespassing, reports the Tampa Tribune.

He was scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Monday, but due to the arraignment waiver, his case has been moved to a pretrial phase slated for 1:30 p.m. March 27.

Stephen Romine, the attorney representing Williams in the case, told The Tampa Tribune that he is confident the matter will be resolved before it reaches the pre-trial phase.

The charges stem from a Dec. 13 incident in which Williams caused approximately $200 to the front door of an acquaintance, according to Hillsborough County court records. The incident in question occurred when Williams "without being authorized, licensed or invited, willfully enter(ed) or remain(ed) in the property of Gabrielle Edwards," according to the charging document.

Williams "did willfully or maliciously injure or damage real or personal property belonging to Edwards, resulting in damage of $200 or less," the document states.

Smith, the new coach, said he "just won't put up" with bad behavior. "It's as simple as that."

Williams has a reputation for partying and was reportedly fined more than $200,000 for being late to or missing team meetings and rehab sessions, the report said. The team wouldn't take a cap hit by releasing him.

Buccaneers must upgrade at receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) The Buccaneers averaged a league-low 176.2 passing yards last season as the team got little receiving production behind Vincent Jackson. With Mike Williams limited to six games by a hamstring injury, Jackson drew 159 targets, more than twice as many as any other Buccaneer.

According to Fox Sports, Tampa Bay "needs more sustainable parts here to be a contender. ... Something must happen."

While Chris Owusu "could grow into a solid player," the website expects the team to be active in free agency, listing Jeremy Maclin, Hakeem Nicks, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Kenny Britt and Dexter McCluster as potential targets.


Report: Buccaneers considered releasing Mike Williams last year


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) The Buccaneers considered releasing wide receiver Mike Williams last season, according to PewterReport.com.

Williams was placed on IR in Week 9 due to a torn hamstring. After the injury, the team became concerned about Williams' erratic behavior. Williams allegedly began missing, or showing up late, to mandatory team meetings. He did the same with scheduled rehab days with the team. Williams compiled over $200,000 in fines due to missing these events. If Greg Schiano had returned as head coach, there was a sense Williams could have been released in the offseason if he wasn't serious about his football career. Williams signed a six-year, $40.25 million extension in 2013.

by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
