WR Mike Williams was traded by the Buccaneers to the Bills Friday (April 4) for a sixth-round pick in this year's draft. Williams made at least 63 catches in each of his first three seasons in the NFL but a hamstring injury limited him to just 22 receptions for 216 yards in six games last year. New coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht were concerned about a number of incidents off the field involving Williams during this offseason. He was arrested, sued by neighbors for his conduct at a house he rented, and his brother was charged with stabbing him in the leg during an attack. "We thank Mike for his contributions to the Buccaneers over the last four seasons," Licht said in a statement. "At this time, we felt this was best for both sides and we wish Mike well going forward." Williams, who is from the Buffalo area, is reunited with Bills coach Doug Marrone. Williams played for Marrone at Syracuse in 2009 and was a fourth-round draft pick of the Bucs in 2010. Marrone kicked Williams off the team in 2010 after getting into a car accident after the team's curfew. He was also suspended for academic reasons in 2008. "Mike Williams is a competitive, tough wide receiver who has the size and athleticism to add competition to our receiver position group," Marrone said in a statement. "We feel Mike is a player who has the ability to help our team improve. With regard to our time at Syracuse, I feel that is in the past for both of us. Today, Mike has an opportunity to get a fresh start to his career here in his hometown and regain his form as a productive player in the National Football League. We look forward to getting Mike into the facility and start our work preparing for the 2014 season once the players are free to report on April 22." In four NFL seasons, Williams has 215 catches for 2,947 yards with 25 touchdowns. Sun, Apr 6 Sportsxchange
