Mike Williams: 'I do have to grow up.'

Tampa Tribune - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Bills trade for Mike Williams

Bills trade a sixth-round pick to Buccaneers in exchange for WR Mike Williams, according to a league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams was born in Buffalo and played (briefly) for Bills HC Doug Marrone while at Syracuse in 2009 before leaving the team to avoid a possible suspension due to his involvement in a car accident with teammates. Marrone clearly feels that Williams' talent is worth a 6th round pick. He's penciled in as the Bills' WR2 or WR3, depending on the status of Steve Johnson.

After the season, BuffaloBills.com writer Chris Brown said on WGR 550 the coaching staff was unable to convince Steve Johnson to buy into the team concept.

"I don't know that anybody felt on the staff thought that they could effectively get in his head, relate to him, know what he was feeling, thinking all the time" Brown said of Johnson on Jan. 3, after the team fired receivers coach Ike Hilliard. "I think it's because Stevie's just a different breed of cat.

"I don't think it's any reflection on this coaching staff. I think this coaching staff did a really good job of kind of aligning themselves with the players, where they felt they were all in this thing together and they were all allies. ...

"But I think Stevie's a hard guy to reach, and when you're trying to build a thing where it's all for one and one for all, and it's hard to reel a guy into that, it makes you wonder just where they feel they're going with him."

Fantasy Impact:

The article discusses how HC Doug Marrone has since reached out to Johnson to clear the air. This is a situation to keep an eye on this offseason. Johnson was the #56 WR in 2013.

Bills HC Doug Marrone sounds optimistic about WRs Robert Woods and Steve Johnson for Week 13.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bills have a Week 12 bye and are coming off a nice passing performance from E.J. Manuel and a win over the Jets with a group of relatively unknown WRs. Woods and Johnson back in the fold would only help Manuel.
