After six weeks of practice and three regular season games, Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and receiver Mike Williams have yet to get on the same page.
Williams finished as Seattle’s leading receiver last season, earning a three-year, $11.2 million contract.
But through three games this season, Williams is tied for fifth on the team with five catches for 43 yards.
And while Sidney Rice led the team with eight catches for 109 yards in his regular-season debut in Seattle’s 13-10 win over Arizona on Sunday, Williams was targeted just once. It was early in the game, and he finished without a catch.
“Obviously, we want to get the ball to Mike a little more,” Jackson said after the game. “We didn’t connect today (Sunday). We didn’t have a lot of plays and defenses – he probably was open a couple times, if I go back and watch the film, I’ll probably see him open a couple of times on the pictures.
“We just have to do a better job of making sure I look for that (and) we get some plays where we get him the ball.”
