Bills’ Mike Williams declares himself in ‘A-plus’ condition

The Bills opened camp today by putting players through a conditioning camp, and receiver Mike Williams says he killed it.

“At the start of camp, just did the conditioning test and I feel real good,” Williams told the Buffalo News. “I feel great. I feel I got an A-plus, if there was a grade for it. I feel I’m ready to go.”

That’s good news because Williams sat out much of the offseason to rest a hamstring that has given him trouble and cut short his 2013 season. Williams says his hamstring issues are behind him.

“I’m fully ready to go,” Williams said. “I trained this whole offseason. There was really no offseason for me. I kinda had to get my leg better. I had to get back to feeling like Mike again, like my mom always tells me. Today running that conditioning test made me feel like I was Mike again.”

Williams was acquired in a trade with the Bucs this offseason, and he has to prove himself just to make the roster in Buffalo. With four talented young receivers in Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and Marcus Easley, the Bills likely only have one roster spot remaining for Williams and all the other receivers to compete for. Starting camp in good shape and 100 percent healthy will go a long way
toward getting that final roster spot.

    Body, A+ condition. Head, C- condition.

    Don’t you mean Doctor Mike Williams.

    You really think Mike Williams can’t beat out a totally unproven Marcus Easley?? Easley has barely played since joining the league out of UConn years ago.

    I like how humble Williams is. Unlike that Calvin “over the hill” Johnson. Calvin reminds me of a young keshawn Johnson, never shuts his mouth, always crying for the ball, his sideline antics when things aren’t going his way are simply atrocious. I heard Calvin is writing same type of book keshawn did.

    So many headlines for a perennial 4 win and basement team.

    Every year fans for teams like Buffalo, NY Jets and Cleveland get excited and every year they’re ready to slit their wrists by week 6.

    But at the end of the day he’s still just a Bill.

    A+ sounds like the grade I’m interested in, but if you also offer a money-back guarantee then I believe you for sure!

    .
    The Bills have an impressive receiving corp. Can Manuel get them the ball? Can the offensive line block?

    What’s the difference between Buffalo and the Seattle Supersonics?

    Nothing. They’ll move too.

    This really is the most talent I’ve seen on a Bills roster in a decade. Let’s just hope EJ can play well. It’s pretty much all on him now.

    How’s many of your challenged friends helped you with a terrible SuperSonic joke….you can always pick out a Jet fan….

  14. sportstalkprofessional says: Jul 19, 2014 4:01 PM

    All they need now is a QB to throw him the ball!

  15. bunjy96 says: Jul 19, 2014 5:00 PM

    and hope he holds on to it.

    “feeling like Mike again”….is that speaking about as a football player or as a chucklehead who can’t seem to stay out of trouble.

    Easley is a special teams player.

    He contributes nothing on offense.

    The Bills picked up Stevenson Sylvester to help out at LB and to play special teams. I have to think it’s so they can cut Easley and keep another talented wideout instead of him eating up a spot.

  22. kgunforhire says: Jul 20, 2014 12:12 AM

    Easley was by far their best ST player. If there’s a WR that should be cut, it’ll be TJ Graham. He offers nothing except for speed and the Bills already have that in Goodwin.

    Wow didn’t realize the Bills had Mike Williams from the Bucs. He had a solid year 2 yrs ago. Things are looking up for the Bills barring injuries. Losing Alonso is a blow.

    They don’t have enough to get to the playoffs though. They should be around the 7-9 8-8 mark which is progress.

    I like EJ Manuel. I think he will be solid. Good RBs with Spiller and Jackson.
