Mike Williams has called his rookie season a “bad year.” No one will argue with that.
The Chargers receiver dealt with a nagging back injury all year, finishing with only 11 catches in 10 games.
“This is a big year for Mike,” receivers coach Phil McGeoghan said, via Ricky Henne of the team website. “Obviously, everyone evaluated him at the combine when he was coming out. He was an unbelievable talent. I tell all the young guys that the biggest year in their whole career is between their first and second year."
McGeoghan went on to say Williams has been phenomenal in the team's room and everyone feels responsible to help him improve and get him up and running. The story said everyone with the team vows the real Williams will show up this season.
