He is signed through 2013, and you can't re-do a rookie contract.  That came up recently with Russell Wilson.

They could extend him beyond 2013, sometime during the 2013 season.

wasnt russel wilson's issue part of the new CBA?  i gotta think they could do an extension now if they wanted, but thats just assuming.
They could, but he would still be playing for the  $685,750 he is due in 2013 game checks.

Was just told by a reliable source that that's not true.


Depends if we are talking extension or new contract.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Best WR2 in the league and a perfect fit next to V-Jax. Gotta make sure to keep him around for a long time.

Mike Williams absolutely deserves a big payday and we have to give him his money.....I just worry how he'll handle all that money. I pray his Mama can keep him grounded, because as great of a player as he is, he is still a bit of a knuckle head off the field. I can't help but worry his production will drop and his suspensions will rise after he gets paid. I really really hope that isn't the case.

He needs to get paid as an elite #2 WR, not as a # 1.

I don't think anyone, including Mike, expects him to get #1 money. The top 10 average for WRs last year, including bonuses and everything...was $12M. Mike will probably be in the area of  $6M.

193 receptions for 2731 yards and 23 TDs in his first three years is pretty damn good though. Not many #2s can boast that kind of production.

Sydney rise got an $8M/year deal in free agency.

Anquan Boldin got $7M/year.

Santanio Holmes got $9M/year.

Roddy White got resigned for $8M/year.

You could argue that these guys are all #1s, but Mike's stats are as good or better than all of these guys.....so he has a valid argument to get a minimum of $6M/year. Otherwise, he'll test FA and get at least that from another team. He's 25 years old and his stats challenge most #1 receivers in the league. Someone will pay him if we don't.

Yeah Robinson's deal averages $6.5M a year, and Mike is clearly better than that nub....so it's hard to imagine Mike and his Agent taking any less.

Beast!

Love Mike Williams.  Touchdown Mike is the perfect compliment for Freeman, who often throws the ball like he is lobbing alley oops. 



Bucs need to resign at the soonest opportunity!  And for five.

Hopefully MikeWill gives a hometown discount. He had a very good year as a #2 opposite VJax. He had a down year as the #1 the prior year. It's probably in everyone's best interest that he stays opposite of VJax here. Hopefully it's at a good price. If not, still resign him.


HOOOOOOOO!!!!

Why would he sign in Buffalo for cheap?
