Mike Williams frustrated with deal or caps lock

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Atlanta Falcons Getty Images

A month ago, Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams said he was “very close” to a new contract.

Now that his definition of close has been turned upside down, Williams is either frustrated by the lack of movement toward a deal, or he’s talking about something else very loudly with his caps lock stuck.

I FEEL LIKE MY FAMILY DON’T WANT ME,” he tweeted yesterday. “HAVENT I BEEN EVERYTHING YOU WANTED AND MORE WHY IS THIS SO HARD FOR YALL. .. AND WE SAY FAMILY FIRST.”

As Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times points out, “family” is one of Bucs coach Greg Schiano’s go-to buzz-words, which he often uses as an acronym meaning “Forget about me, I love you.”

Whether it’s from his Bucs family, or his own family, Williams obviously isn’t feeling the love right now, and it makes him want to yell at our eyeballs.

    I also feel like my family doesn’t want me when they don’t offer to pay me as much as I want to perform my family duties.

    To quote Smoot, “he be rubbing people wrong.”

    Pay him. Williams had his issues in college he had to suck it up and now this contract his REWARD for doing it the right way. Dont string him along just pay him…Bucs front office has done everything right in the last few years dont back track now….

  4. zatoichi7 says: Jul 12, 2013 10:45 AM

    send him to washington if you don’t want him, williams is young and talented.

    Seems awfully Brokebackish…

    He seems to be having trouble controlling THE VOLUME OF HIS VOICE!!!

    They would probably like you to go over 1000 yards.

    Schiano and Glazer suck.
    Scumbags with the high priced beer, crappy, hot stadium and a lousy team
    Pay the guy. He is making the QB a decent one.
    Without Williams and VJ, Freeman would be a high priced stiff

  9. floratiotime says: Jul 12, 2013 10:55 AM

    I’m assuming the only way they can show how much they want him is by giving him a lot of money.

  10. westampa says: Jul 12, 2013 10:59 AM

    Mark “Rockstar” Dominick needs to pay this guy. He outperformed the bust Arelious Benn, and definitely outperformed his draft position. Bucs have gotten tremendous value out of this mid-round draft pick. Dumbinick quickly handed Michael Clayton 10 mil when he became GM, so I am not sure why he is so hesitant to resign a WR that is actually good.

    LOUD NOISES!!!

  12. ziplock10 says: Jul 12, 2013 11:04 AM

    What he probably has is leaches for family!

  13. daysend564 says: Jul 12, 2013 11:04 AM

    Guy has yet to have a 1000 yard season and barely catches 50% of the balls thrown to him. They should be paying him, why?

  14. av416 says: Jul 12, 2013 11:07 AM

    CAN SOMEONE HEAR ME

  15. Mike Williams says: Jul 12, 2013 11:08 AM

    Yes I am “Frustrated”

  16. firstclasspack says: Jul 12, 2013 11:11 AM

    He probably deserves a long term higher paying contract but when you take to Twitter to publicly complain that your 4 year 2.3 million dollar contract is not enough don’t expect the average Joe out there to feel sorry for you.

  17. steelerben says: Jul 12, 2013 11:12 AM

    Career Stats (4 seasons):

    193 catches on 378 targets. That’s a 51% completion ratio.

    2,371 yards.

    23 touchdowns

    5 fumbles (4 lost)

    I can see the appeal to family when discussing contract status. No one but his mom thinks he deserves the amount of money he’s asking for.

  18. thirdistheworrd says: Jul 12, 2013 11:12 AM

    GREAT TITLE. I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE’S GOING THROUGH.

  19. briscocountyjr says: Jul 12, 2013 11:17 AM

    I’M SURE YALL CAN UNDERSTAND THAT GETTING PAID AS A WELL PERFORMING WR IS IMPORTANT, SO NOT SURE WHY HE WOULDN’T GET PAID BY THE FAMILY.

  20. lgbarn says: Jul 12, 2013 11:18 AM

    The guy HAS been everything I had hoped and I am looking for bigger things out of him.

    PAY THE MAN!!!

  21. packerbackernj says: Jul 12, 2013 11:20 AM

    I LOVE LAMP

  22. whysomanylosers says: Jul 12, 2013 11:24 AM

    A lot are saying “just pay him”… but until the details come out, how do we know he’s not asking for Calvin Johnson kinda money?

    I would love to seem him locked up long term, but he could also be one of those guys that disappear once they sign for the big money.

  23. flmike says: Jul 12, 2013 11:28 AM

    @daysend564
    In 3 seasons, two of those in a crappy offense where he was basically the only WR he’s avg.
    Receptions 64
    Receiving Yards 900
    Receiving TDs 7.5

    his totals are
    Receptions 193
    Receiving Yards 2,731
    Receiving TDs 23

  24. redskinfansince82 says: Jul 12, 2013 11:35 AM

    At least he want’s to work and is ready to go. If the Bucs Really wanted you you would have been signed already. He may be a step child? lol

  25. bennyb82 says: Jul 12, 2013 11:39 AM

    I can understand why he is frustrated but pouting over Twitter will do as much good as stomping your feet up the stairs in regards to getting what he wants.

  26. Punk says: Jul 12, 2013 11:41 AM

    “Haven’t I been everything you wanted?”

    No. They wanted a #1 receiver. Instead they had to overpay some other guy to be the #1 because you weren’t it.

  27. draftrobot says: Jul 12, 2013 11:44 AM

    Darrelle Revis, drafted by the Jets, given tens of millions of dollars.
    Dashon Goldson, drafted by the 49ers, given tens of millions of dollars.
    Vincent Jackson, drafted by the Chargers, given tens of millions of dollars.
    Carl Nicks, drafted by the Saints, given tens of millions of dollars.
    Eric Wright, drafted by the Browns, given tens of millions of dollars.
    Mike Williams, drafted by Mark Dominik, given minimum salaries.

    I’m sure that’s not frustrating.

  28. daysend564 says: Jul 12, 2013 11:44 AM

    You generally know what you’ve got in a WR after their 3rd year.

    Give him 200k for every YPG he’s had since coming into the league, for a year total equal to the number of years he’s had to raise that YPG total.

    56 YPG * 200k = 3 year, 10.2M

    Basically, pay him for what he is….a #2 WR.

    Anyone who thinks of a professional sports team as a “family” is SERIOUSLY deluding themselves.

    ***********************************************
    Nobody drafts a WR in the 4th Rd and expects him to be a stud number one. If they do their morons. Mostly you hope a 4th rd WR can contribute. He’s more than done that.

  38. petedutcherjr says: Jul 12, 2013 12:30 PM

    Most of you have no clue at all.

    The Bucs want him. He’ll have a contract before training camp. He’s just nervous because it’s less than two weeks till TC.

    what happened to thumbs up/down?

  41. briandorry55 says: Jul 12, 2013 12:54 PM

    The Bucs need to figure something out with Williams because after him we don’t have anyone on the roster capable of stepping into a #2 receiver position. Williams is a huge redzone threat for Freeman (more TDs than Jackson last year)…but if the guy wants $7 million a year then I think that’s too much. Give him that and we are going to be in cap hell in no time. This is what happens when stupid organizations like the Chargers and Jaguars give bums like Meachem and Robinson #1 wideout money.

  42. tacowrecker says: Jul 12, 2013 1:07 PM

    Donovan McNabb is “furious” the Bucs are trying to sign Williams to a new deal, stating that “he hasn’t earned anything yet” and added that ” if the Buccaneers and the city of Tampa were serious about winning and showing me the respect I deserve they’d sign me instead.” McNabb then puked and ended the interview

    those stats would not be that impressive if u weren’t completely wrong cause he hasn’t played for seasons. hes played 3. going into his fourth year now. But you gave it a great shot.

  47. glazerh8er says: Jul 12, 2013 1:58 PM

    guy is a top tier #2 and played a solid #1 during Freeman’s best year. He can make very difficult catches (luckily considering Freeman), under pressure. I promise you the entire league would pay him high tier #2 money. And this is nerves before training camp, he’ll get locked up.

    HAHAHAHAHA that is so funny, like a reciever can just go over a 1000 yards when he has a quarterback that can’t throw the ball accurately over 5 yards….HAHAHAHAHHA enjoy those six rings cause your never gonna see the seventh idiot!!

    you all forget the cap situation. williams was good, but not a game changer. i also think that his work ethic good be better.

    The number one corporate lie: “Our biggest asset is our people.” No, it’s the all mighty dollar. It’s okay for a corporation to think this, but don’t get upset when they tell you it’s about “family”. It’s about money… and that saying goes both way. I’m sure the Bucs have already made an offer that wasn’t enough… YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT BOTH SIDES MY FRIENDS.

  53. therealhazer says: Jul 12, 2013 9:03 PM

    Love the guy, but you did sign the contract.

  54. meandjuliojonesdownbytheschoolyard says: Jul 12, 2013 9:51 PM

    No way they’re not locking him up. He needs to sit tight.

  55. onermedboxer says: Jul 13, 2013 3:58 PM

    He tweeted this in reference to his actual family, not the Buccaneers
