Considering the weight issues that plagued Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams early in his career, it’s fair for the Seahawks and their fans to wonder about Williams’ fitness level during the lockout.
Williams has heard the concern first hand.
“This whole offseason, everyone’s been saying, ‘Oh, all this time off and his attitude, he’s going to be fat again,’” Williams said this week via the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. “Well, good luck with that. I’m here having a good time and let’s get back to work.”
And by having a good time, Williams means he is getting in a lot of work. He says he does roughly six hours of cardio a day. Two and a half hours are football-related, and he plays a couple sessions of basketball. The former USC product has incentives built in to his contract to stay in shape.
Williams reportedly looks good, although he is starting to find the lockout a little dry.
“When you find yourself going to two movies in the same day before night time. That’s when you’re bored,” Williams said. “When you go see Kung Fu Panda 2 and Fast Five in the same day before 7 p.m., you might be a little bored.”
