Bills Are Giving Mike Williams A Second Chance
The Buffalo Bills are giving Mike Williams a massive second chance.
As detailed in Sunday’s piece by Bucky Gleason in the Buffalo News, Williams’ time in Tampa included, but was not limited to:
- Having a fire at his $1 million rental home, which he eventually had to purchase.
- Destroying neighbors property around his other Tampa rental home.
- Throwing a well publicized party two days before training camp began.
- Five speeding tickets in a six month time period (kind of impressive, by the way).
- Currently facing charges where he allegedly knocked his girlfriend’s door off the hinges.
- His brother, Doug Williams, turned himself into police after stabbing Mike last month.
The Bills owe $1.2 million for this upcoming season. After that, the price tag increases to $5.2 million in 2015. They’ve given up a 6th round pick to bring him in.
So if Williams can’t stay out of trouble (which, based off his past, isn’t a bold accusation), then the Bills threw away $1.2 and a 6th, providing they would cut him after this year.
Still, if it works out, the talented wideout has suddenly brought his NFL career back to life along with creating a more watchable receiver trio with Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods.
More is on the line for Williams, for sure. Here’s to hoping he gets it right this time.
