Mike Williams: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The move leaves the Seahawks rather thin at wide receiver. Williams, who is recovering from an ankle injury he suffered late last season, tallied only 18 receptions for 236 yards in 12 games last year. Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler will be called upon to make bigger contributions in the passing game in Williams' absence.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Mike Williams.
A concussion and hamstring and shoulder injuries rendered Williams an afterthought in the Seahawks offense for most of the season, and then he broke his ankle in December. As a result, heís slated to miss all the teamís offseason workouts but is rehabbing vigorously and hopes to be ready for training camp. At 6-5, and hoping to slim down to 240, Williams is massive for a receiver and provided Matt Hasselbeck with a reliable possession target in 2010. His injuries and lack of rapport with Tarvaris Jackson last year might not be indicative of his 2012 prospects as Matt Flynn was brought in and is the favorite to win the starting quarterback job.
After being out of football for two years and having ballooned up near 300 pounds, Williams got a second chance with his college coach Pete Carroll and made the most of it. At 6-5, 240, Williams looks and plays as much like a tight end as a receiver. He's neither fast, nor shifty, but he's a huge target and a matchup problem for both defensive backs and linebackers. Williams saw 17 looks from inside the red-zone but converted just two, his only scores of the regular season. Williams looked to be the team's top target for 2011, until the team brought in Sidney Rice as a free agent. With Tavaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst battling for the starting job, it may take some time for Williams to begin producing like a No. 1 receiver again. At the very least Williams has established himself as one of the team's top options heading into 2011.
Williams has been out of football for two years, but he has a couple things going for him. First, his coach is his former college coach, Pete Carroll. Second, Seattle's receivers are a weak lot. Williams looked good in minicamp and comes to training camp with a roster spot nearly assured. Where he takes it from there remains to be seen, but opportunity shouldn't be a problem. Keep him on your radar.
Williams has lost 30 pounds in the offseason and will try to save his career in Tennessee. At this point, Williams is fighting for a roster spot.
A bust in Detroit, but reunited with college coach Lane Kiffin. Williams is a huge WR with the potential to develop into a goal line threat. Questionable attitude and commitment.
Williamsí rookie season was a disappointment, to be sure Ė he had just two games of more than 45 yards receiving and battled foot, back and hamstring injuries. But that might have been expected considering the awful state of the Lions passing game and the fact that Williamsí was a rookie who hadnít played football in two years. This season, Williams will battle Scottie Vines and oft-injured Charles Rogers for the starting job opposite Roy Williams, and if he prevails, there are some good reasons to roll the dice on him. Williams wonít be coming into the season cold after a year away from the game, offensive coordinator Mike Martz and the Lionsí upgrades at quarterback should improve the Lionsí passing game as a whole, and receivers typically experience significant growth in their second seasons. Williams arrived at the Lionsí spring minicamp 10 pounds lighter and in better shape than a year ago, and at 6-5, 224, the added quickness should make him even more difficult for opposing defenses to match up with.
The No. 10 overall pick in this yearís draft, Williams likely will go into the season as the Lionsí third receiver behind Roy Williams and Charles Rogers. At 6-5, 230 pounds, Williams is an absolute monster for defensive backs to match up with, and though heís not fast, heís got passable speed for his size. Williams is also a fluid athlete, with good body control and change of direction skills. Because Williams tried to enter the draft after 2004 and hired an agent, he was ineligible to return to USC last season, and had to sit out a year, which could make him rusty. But assuming he picks up where he left off in training camp, expect Williams to be involved in the passing game from the get go, especially if Charles Rogers gets hurt again.
