Also, in regards to Mike's contract, go check out @Bucs_Nation and @LeoHowell8 on Twitter.  They are trying to figure out which years are guaranteed (officially) and which years aren't. If 2014 is guaranteed, there's no chance he goes anywhere...unless...they can trade him...I think Lovie will try his best to get through to him.  I'd honestly be surprised if he can't.  We'll see...

His contract included $8.4M guaranteed and he got that in 2013. His base salary from 2013 and 2014 are also guaranteed.....so his $1.2M base salary in 2014 is still guaranteed....but that is all.  http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/tampa-bay-buccaneers/mike-williams/

@Bucs_Nation:@corryjoel Joel, do you know if Mike Williams '14 and '15 salaries are skill/cap/injury guaranteed? Some suggestions he could be released@corryjoel:@Bucs_Nation Mike Williams has fully GTD (w/an offset) '14/'15 base salaries of $1.2M/$5.2M. There would be $6.4M in dead $$ if he's cut.@Bucs_Nation:@corryjoel Thanks! That makes releasing him even more unlikely.EDIT:@corryjoel:@Bucs_Nation No problem. Mike Williams' 2015 guarantee would accelerate to the 2014 cap. His dead $$ is $4.6M more than his $1.8M cap #.@corryjoel:@LeoHowell8 @Bucs_Nation Mike Williams' 2013-2015 bases ($13.6M) were fully GTD (w/offsets) at signing. He also had a $1M 7/27 roster bonus.

I don't know who those people on twitter are, but sportrac is a reputable site. I'm gonna believe them over some guys on twitter.

Please wait…
