Panthers reportedly hosting free-agent WR Mike Williams for visit

The Carolina Panthers have already done quite a bit of work at the start of the new league year. But they appear far from done.

According to Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer, the team plans to host free-agent wide receiver Mike Williams for a visit next week. The 29-year-old pass catcher was released by the Los Angeles Chargers in a money-saving move this past Wednesday.

A Holly Hill, S.C. native, Williams attended nearby Clemson University from 2013 to 2016. He wrapped up his time as a Tiger as a national champion and a first-team All-ACC member—an honor he earned after reeling in 98 catches for 1,361 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Williams was then selected with the seventh overall pick of the 2017 draft by the Chargers. Over his seven-year pro career, which has been slowed by injuries, the 6-foot-4, 218-pounder has totaled 309 receptions for 4,806 yards and 31 scores.

His 2023 campaign was cut short after just three games due to an ACL tear.
