Chiefs released WR Mike Williams.
Williams was trying to rejuvenate his career in Kansas City, but looked sluggish in the preseason and had a drop in the Chiefs' second exhibition game. At age 29, the former second-round pick's career looks to be nearing an end. Wed, Aug 24, 2016 08:56:00 PM

Chiefs signed WR Mike Williams, formerly of the Buccaneers.

Drafted in the fourth round out of Syracuse in 2010, Williams caught 23 touchdowns in his first three seasons before injuries and off-field issues torpedoed his career. He got back in shape recently, working out for the Patriots, Bengals, and Kansas City since last season ended. Turning 29 in May, Williams is worth a look for a Chiefs offense short on big, physical receivers.

Free agent WR Mike Williams will work out for the Bengals on Tuesday.

Going on 29, Williams has just eight catches since the end of the 2013 season. He was out of the league last year. Williams, whose career was derailed partly by off-the-field issues, still has some upside as a flier, but he'd be far from assured of cracking the 53-man roster in Cincinnati.

Free agent WR Mike Williams worked out for the Patriots.

Williams has been out of the league since December of 2014. A fourth-round pick in the 2010 draft, Williams caught 23 touchdown passes across his first three NFL seasons but flamed out due to injuries and off-the-field issues.

NFL suspended free agent WR Mike Williams three games.

It's unclear which policy Williams has violated, but his career has involved constant trouble off the field. Now 28, Williams caught only eight passes in nine games for the Bills last season. He's just about worn out his NFL welcome.

The player rep for free agent WR Mike Williams has six meetings lined up at the Combine in Indianapolis this week.

Players that were released from their teams have a leg up right now because they can meet/sign with teams before the new league year opens March 10. Of course, these players were released for a reason. Battling both off-field issues and on-field mediocrity, Williams has just 30 catches over the last two seasons while appearing in 15 games for the Bucs and Bills.

Bills released WR Mike Williams from injured reserve.

Williams is free to sign with any team, as he already passed through waivers unclaimed when he was waived/injured earlier this month. A mess off the field who has declined on it, Williams' phone isn't going to be ringing off the hook.

Bills WR Mike Williams (calf) passed through waivers unclaimed, and has reverted to injured reserve.

No one was going to claim the unproductive and injured wideout, who is due a staggering $5.2 million guaranteed next season. The Bills will likely cut their losses and release Williams in the offseason despite the cap hit that will come with it. Williams has just 30 catches since the end of the 2012 season.

Bills waived/injured WR Mike Williams.

Williams has been dealing with a calf injury. He could theoretically be claimed off waivers for the stretch run and playoffs, though the claiming team would have to pay the rest of his fully-guaranteed salary. Most likely, Williams' season is over in addition to his time in Buffalo. He caught just eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown across nine games (zero starts).

Mike Williams (calf) has been ruled out for Week 14.

Williams was a healthy scratch last week and wasn't a lock to be active even if healthy. The Bills will continue to go with Chris Hogan in three-wide sets.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 06:01:00 PM

Bills declared WR Mike Williams, S Bacarri Rambo, FB Frank Summers, LB Randell Johnson, OL Cyrus Kouandjio, TE Chris Gragg and DE Jarius Wynn inactive for Week 13 against the Browns.

It's a quiet list for the Bills, who enter Week 13 as one of the league's healthier teams. Williams is going down as one of the worst acquisitions of the offseason.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 11:32:00 AM

Mike Williams is inactive for Week 10 against the Chiefs.

With Marquise Goodwin returning this week, Williams is a healthy scratch. He's now behind Goodwin and Chris Hogan on the depth chart. Robert Woods will continue to start opposite Sammy Watkins.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 11:53:00 AM

Mike Williams is expected to be active this week.

Williams was a surprise healthy scratch last week. He'll likely be the Bills' No. 4 receiver this week with Marquise Goodwin sidelined. Chris Hogan should continue to play ahead of Williams in three-wide sets.

Coach Doug Marrone admits Mike Williams and his trade request have become a distraction.

Williams' agent requested that the Bills trade his client after he fell behind Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and Chris Hogan on the depth chart. Williams may also be behind Marquise Goodwin, as Williams was inactive for Week 6 and in a scout-team practice jersey Wednesday. Williams has four years left on a six-year, $40.25 million deal that the Bills are wishing they hadn't dealt for in the offseason.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 02:25:00 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger reports Bills WR Mike Williams to the Giants is "not going to happen."

The New York Daily News reported Tuesday morning that the G-Men have "some interest" in the disgruntled wideout, but via a "person familiar with the situation," reporter Jordan Raanan says it isn't happening. It's not surprising. There would be no reason for the Giants, or any other team, to give up compensation for a declining player due $5.2 million guaranteed in 2015.
