Mike Williams out of the hospital, police search for his brother

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams has been released from the hospital after suffering a stab wound to his leg on Sunday. Police are searching for his brother in connection with the incident.

Police responded to a call to Williams’s home on Sunday to find that Williams had been stabbed in the left thigh with a kitchen knife by his brother, Eric Baylor. According to the Tampa Tribune, police are still searching for Baylor, who is charged with aggravated battery domestic violence.

“We are trying to get in contact with the brother to see exactly what happened,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Cristal Bermudez Nunez told the Tampa ay Times. “Witnesses said they were horsing around, but the brother was not on the scene when we arrived.”

Although Williams is the victim, not the perpetrator, in this case, it adds to the general feeling in Tampa that having Williams around means constantly having to worry about off-field issues arising. Asked what Williams needs to prove to the new regime, Bucs General Manager Jason Licht said, “He has to prove he shouldn’t make headlines off the field. Start with that.”

Williams hasn’t been able to prove that.

    The solution to this craziness is apparent….the government obviously needs to pass legislation that bans possession of all kitchen knives.

    Family Values.

    I find it exceedingly difficult to criticize a guy for getting stabbed by his brother.

    “Horsing around”…. with a kitchen knife? O.o

    What is it with wide receivers being so high maintenance?

    Bucs outsmarted themselves with that huge contract extension. There’s a reason why a talent of his caliber fell so far in the draft. He had massive, well-publicized character red flags dating back to college.

    Going to be cut because you got cut?

    Having a whacked out brother shouldn’t be an issue but not playing well after he got his big contract is critical.

    Good player but Lovie doesn’t want any headaches even slightly so I would think they’ll at least try and trade him and when that likely fails he’ll probably be cut (again…)

    Yep,myself and all the other adults in the family horse around with kitchen knives every weekend. It’s tradition!

    I wonder if any other teams will take a stab at him if he is released.

    Just couldn’t resist, could you?

  13. mjmistretta says: Mar 24, 2014 9:37 AM

    So we should trade him for being stabbed??? Yeah that maks since!!!

  14. arrowgargantuan says: Mar 24, 2014 9:48 AM

    Maks a lotta since.

  15. blowpackblow says: Mar 24, 2014 10:28 AM

    Neither one of them sound very…sharp.

  16. sincejumpstreet says: Mar 24, 2014 10:35 AM

    Williams, a real laugh riot. Lovie has probably already cut him. The league doesn’t need losers like that.

    This story is about low character syracuse mike williams… NOT… fat, high character NFL bust USC Mike Williams.

    “Witnesses said they were horsing around”

    I’m guessing Williams was caught trying to take the last dinner roll?

  22. nicofthenorthstar says: Mar 24, 2014 2:01 PM

    Horsing around and end up stabbed in the leg. How old are these idiots?

  23. stevemad says: Mar 24, 2014 2:54 PM

    He’s not the “sharpest knife in the bulb drawer”

  24. jimmyjamm03 says: Mar 24, 2014 2:59 PM

    His brother heard he was going to be cut by the Bucs, so he decided to keep it in the family…
