The CFL's Toronto Argonauts have released former NFL WR "Big" Mike Williams.
BMW made it just eight days north of the border. It would appear his playing days are over. The No. 10 pick of the 2005 draft, Williams fades away with 127 career catches for 1,526 yards and five touchdowns to his name. Mon, Jun 3, 2013 10:57:00 AM

Ex-Seahawks WR "Big" Mike Williams has signed with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.

Williams, 29, was out of the NFL last season, after spending the previous two seasons in Seattle. He was released last July, and there were reports that he had weighed upwards of 270 pounds. Williams caught 83 passes for 987 yards and three touchdowns in 26 games with the Seahawks from 2010-11.

Free agent "Big" Mike Williams is holding out hope of playing in the NFL this season.

Williams garnered no immediate interest after he reportedly weighed in at 270 pounds when the Seahawks released him early this month. He's now "optimistic" about catching on with a receiver-needy team such as the Jets, Dolphins or Cowboys. Williams insists he still has "nothing but love" for the Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll.

ESPN 1500 Minneapolis' Tom Pelissero "heard" free agent Mike Williams weighed over 270 pounds when he was released from the Seahawks.

If true, it would explain why the Seahawks didn't wait until camp to release Williams, and makes it extremely unlikely he generates any interest on the open market. Even before he ballooned back up to a weight he cracked back in 2007 with the Titans, Williams' already limited playmaking ability had vanished.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll explained that the team released Big Mike Williams because he had maxed out his effectiveness in Seattle.

Williams isn't highly regarded around the NFL, either, seeing as he's yet to draw any interest. "I just felt like it was time to just go ahead and move on," said Carroll. "Mike had probably topped out what he was going to do for us at this place. Hopefully, he'll get another chance to do something somewhere else."

Seahawks released WR Mike Williams.

Williams' release comes just four days after the Seattle Times postulated his roster spot was up in the air. Still rehabbing from a gruesome late-season leg injury, Williams was set to count $3.6 million against the cap after catching just 18 passes for 236 yards in 12 games in 2011. The move is good news for Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler, who now have one less body to compete with. Although Williams' 2010 comeback made for an excellent story, he should draw limited interest in free agency. Williams' injury is a major long-term concern, and he struggled mightily to create separation from defensive backs before it.

The Seattle Times doesn't consider any of WRs Mike Williams, Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler locks to crack the Seahawks' 53-man roster.

Beat writer Danny O'Neill believes Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate are the only sure things in Seattle's receiver corps, and that Williams, Obomanu and Butler will be competing with the likes of 2011 fourth-round pick Kris Durham and Ricardo Lockette. Questionable for the beginning of camp as he recovers from his leg and ankle breaks, BMW's roster spot is likely in grave danger.
Mon, Jul 9, 2012 06:50:00 PM

Coach Pete Carroll suggests Mike Williams (fractured ankle, fibula) is close to returning to practice.

"He just hasn't done enough work running routes and changing directions and things like that to let him go," Carroll said. "But he can run straight ahead full speed. So he’s getting close to being full-go." Coming off a major injury, Williams' 2012 role is up in the air.
Wed, Jun 13, 2012 01:28:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll conceded that "it's going to be awhile" before Big Mike Williams (fractured ankle, fibula) gets back on the field.

"He’s not ready yet to be on a practice field," Carroll said. "He has not had a chance to work with us at all. ... He had a significant leg injury. They are not ready to release him yet. He can run straight ahead, but he can’t change direction, so it is going to be awhile." Due $3.25 million, Williams' roster spot may hang in the balance. At best, he looks like a PUP candidate to open the season.
Wed, May 30, 2012 02:20:00 PM

According to the National Football Post, "reverting back to some of his old lazy habits" contributed to Mike Williams not staying healthy last year.

Williams, of course, has a well-documented history of weight issues. His conditioning this offseason is also concern, as Williams is not taking part in OTAs while rehabbing a fractured left ankle and fibula. He'll have to prove he's healthy in order to hold off Deon Butler, Kris Durham, and possibly even UDFA Lavasier Tuinei in training camp. Working against Williams is the fact that he's easily the most expensive ($3M salary) of the group.
Sun, May 27, 2012 09:24:00 AM

Receivers Mike Williams (leg) and Sidney Rice (shoulder surgeries, concussions) are not taking part in Seahawks voluntary workouts.

Rice's absence was expected, but there was an outside chance Williams would participate. Recovering from a broken left ankle and fibula, Williams will have to be 100 percent healthy to even be in the mix for a roster spot in training camp.
Sat, May 5, 2012 10:49:00 AM

Seahawks WR Mike Williams reportedly began running Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his left ankle and fibula in December.

At his current recovery rate, Williams seems doubtful to participate in post-draft OTAs. Due $3 million in 2012, Williams will have to ensure that he's healthy by training camp to hold off younger, more promising receivers for a roster spot.
Wed, Apr 25, 2012 11:55:00 AM

Although he's off crutches and rehabbing at Seahawks headquarters, Mike Williams (fibula) is unsure if he'll ready for OTAs in mid-April.

Williams is determined to get better, faster, and more explosive this offseason, dropping well below his 240-pound playing weight of the past two seasons. That's going to be easier said than done coming off a fractured left ankle and fibula.
Thu, Feb 2, 2012 09:33:00 PM

Seahawks placed WR Mike Williams on injured reserve with a fractured left ankle and fibula, ending his season.

Williams is no lock to return to the Seahawks in 2012 at a $3 million price tag. He predictably crashed back to earth this season, recording just 18 catches for 236 yards with one touchdown in 12 games. Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Ben Obomanu, and Doug Baldwin are all better receivers than the plodding Williams.
Tue, Dec 20, 2011 10:18:00 AM

Big Mike Williams suffered a fractured ankle and fibula in the second half of Seattle's Week 15 win over Chicago.

He won't play in the last two games. A legit candidate for NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2011, Williams has fallen completely off the map during his second season under Pete Carroll. Williams is painfully slow, can't separate from defensive backs, and has been injury prone. It's fair to wonder whether Seattle will pick up Williams' $3 million salary in 2012.
