Speculation of what MW's fair market value is right now is futile. He  needs to pave his own road to riches this season.
It's not futile, Williams is in a contract year, this is exactly when you talk about it.  Sure he needs to pave his own way, but unless he has a Calvin Johnson-type season, he's numbers over the last 3 season are very similar... there's not much more that he can do to improve his value.


Two things holding him back is Freeman's laughable accuracy on shorter routes and the long shadow of VJax.
He probably won't actually be able to maximize his true talents as long as both Freeman and Jackson are here.


All that said, this guy has done as much as any other Buc over the past two seasons.
While that's true, you can't allow that to play a part in negotiating.  You can't just pay him "X" amount of dollars simply because of it.  His production is what it is and his compensation should be a reflection of just that.  Once you start overpaying players based on emotion, you're setting yourself up for cap disaster.

You got prove it. No more big time contracts on the idea that it'll work out. Dom may have done that in the past but the Schiano/Dominick connection seems to be pure gold so far and this franchise is headed places.

Might have the best body control of any receiver in the league, he's a perfect above average #2 receiver.  we've still got a year to work out a deal with him.  7 mil sounds about right, the cruz and eventually nicks contracts will probably play pretty big into what he asks for.

No one said he was easily replaceable . Stop smoking that crack....

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.
