Said Mike & his agent....and NO ONE ELSE!

8 million, every year, for the next 3 years... for a #2 ?!

Zsnore:
Do it

DeltaBuc5:
Wait...and they're having second-thoughts about giving him this kind of money? Yet they gave that **CENSORED** Clayton 5m/year with no problem?

#2? He's a potential #1. Hell, do you know how many teams wish they had Williams as their #1 right now?

They gave Michael Clayton his $5 mil back when they were the low spenders of the NFL and cap was not even an issue with the Bucs.

bucinsouthFL:
Mike is worth that money.

DerekPHFD:
Worth the money IMO. MW is a lot like Julio Jones in terms of being a "Number 2". White is the 1, but Jones isn't the number 2. It is 1A and 1B. 
I am sure that i could get laughed at, and I know the obvious responses (A great FA pass rusher or true TE next year) but where else should we spend the money other than keeping two number one WRs? I am not sure of what in prime DEs or TEs are going to be on the open market next year. I have done no research on either position that will be up for FA for next year, though.
