Mike Williams Traded To Buffalo Bills For 6th Round Pick


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded WR Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills for a 6th round pick, per James Walker. The Bills received some good value out of that 6th round selection. Williams has the ability to start on offense and can help the team on offense immediately.

Williams has been a starter with the Buccaneers for the last 4 seasons and has racked up 2947 yards receiving and 25 touchdowns. He has yet to surpass 1000 yards in receiving, but he is a good threat in the red zone. In his rookie season, he caught 11 touchdown passes.

Williams has had a crazy offseason so far. He was stabbed in the leg by his brother and he is also getting sued by his insurance company after a kitchen fire started in his house. Now he is traded from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Buffalo Bills.

The Buccaneers will likely be looking to add a wide receiver on the first day of the draft and they could look to add Sammy Watkins in the first round. The Bucs want someone to team up with Vincent Jackson on offense and they are looking for someone to stretch the field.

    Another plank in the Glazer family’s players for peanuts program, spreading generosity and good will to all the teams in the AFC East in exchange for draft picks that usually turn into rookies cut in the preseason. Williams’s salary cap space is likely to be spent on nothing. Watkins will not be available when the Bucs draft. Selection of Mike Evans appears inevitable. Not much of an upgrade over Williams but, as we all have come to realize, public relations zealots are more important than quirky, talented players at One Buc HQ.
