Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams believes he has some growing up to do.
Williams, who was traded Friday to the Buffalo Bills for a 2014 sixth-round draft pick, admitted as much during an introductory press conference in Buffalo on Monday.
“Yes, I think I do need to grow up a little bit more,” Williams, 26, told The Buffalo News. “I think with me having a son, it made me realize things a little bit more and how important it is, and what type of future I have for him and my family. A lot of people are depending on me, so you’re right, I do have to grow up.”
Williams, who averaged 65 catches for 910 yards and seven touchdowns during his first three years in the league, was traded during what has been a problematic offseason for the 2010 fourth-round draft pick. His name surfaced three times in connection with off-field incidents.
It's good to hear Williams admit that he has some work to do in the maturity department. From a fantasy standpoint, he's not entering a good situation in Buffalo. The Bills were very run-oriented in 2013 and Steve Johnson is still the team's WR1, but things could change quickly if the rumors are true and the team parts ways with Johnson.
