Bucs sign rookie wideout Mike Williams

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Bucs have signed rookie wide receiver Mike Williams to a four-year contract.

Schefter has presumably gotten good vibes from people close to the Bucs about Williams’ early offseason work.  Schefter predicts Williams “is going to be good.”
At least based on Williams’ play as a sophomore and the first half of his junior season, he should be.  The 6-foot-2, 204-pound receiver caught 60 passes, averaged 13.9 yards per catch, and scored 10 touchdowns in 2008.  Before (allegedly) quitting Orange coach Doug Marrone’s team after seven games last year, Williams was on pace for a 77-catch, 1,173-yard, 10-touchdown campaign.
In Tampa Bay, Williams is competing for the starting receiver position opposite second-round pick Arrelious Benn.  Williams’ competition includes Maurice Stovall, Michael Clayton, and Reggie Brown.

    If the Buccaneers are known as the “Bucs”, and the Patriots are known as the “Pats”–what do we call the Titans?
    (sorry, headline caused me to lapse into old George Carlin jokes)

    When you click the link in your article for Mike Williams, it takes you to the Seahawks Mike Williams not the one that plays for the Bucs.
