What's with people saying that Williams is easily replaceable? Is he really that easy to replace?why would you not want to resign a WR that you drafted and that has produced for you?

He's not easily replaceable. Who TF say that?! I feel Domink is saving o lot of cap room to resign MWill later this year.

i have been reading some (not a lot) poster's saying you can find a number 2 anywhere and we should focus on getting a slot/3rd WR.

In the NYG offense, the slot is a more important position than the #2 WR

It's been a pretty common theme in a couple of threads, specifically the Revis thread.  Basic idea is that Mike Williams is such a big deal b/c his production well exceeds his paycheck, creating serious value for the Bucs.  It's been a counterattack for some posters who think we shouldn't waste a first rounder on Revis, b/c we can find better value at the CB position through the draft (mid level talent / low cost vs. top of the line talent / serious $).  So the concept is Mike Williams (if getting paid what he deserves for his production) we'd be better to let walk away and find a replacement in the draft for less money.

It's a wonderful plan, if the idea is to be mildly competitive and low budget every year, something the Bucs have done for a while now.  The problem is that every once in a while you have to make a run and sign some big name players to take you over the edge of mediocrity and into contention to make a playoff run, which is what many of us are hoping is happening now.

No team can pay EVERY PLAYER "what they are worth". It's just a matter of "when your contract comes up" many times.

Sadly, with the way the NFL is getting away from the "middle class player", Mike Williams may fit into that category.

Not an absolute knock against Williams, but that's just the economic trend of today's NFL, imo.
huh ???

and where is Steve Smith now? Cruz is still producing. if the slot is more important, what happened to the slot in the Giants O last year, Hicks and Cruz was #1 and #2.

Cruz played 70% of his snaps in the slot.  Their #2 wideout was a nobody.  Shared snaps between Hixon, Randle, and Barden

Williams is in a great position. He has Vincent to learn from and take double coverage. Mike can't be replaced, the only problem I have with him is crucial drops and fumbles.

+1

I don't know the stats but I feel like drops and fumbles improved pretty dramatically last year?
