Mike Williams is done in Tampa Bay. On Friday the team sent the wide receiver to Buffalo for a sixth round pick.
In Buffalo, Williams will be reunited with Doug Marrone who coached him at Syracuse before the receiver quit after breaking team rules. He went on to be selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by Tampa Bay and led all rookies in catches, yards and touchdowns before becoming a off the field distraction.
Strange but true: Bills now have 7 players named Williams on roster – Mike, Aaron, Chris, Duke, Kyle, Mario and Nathan. (via @AdamSchefter)

While Williams may not be an elite receiver, when on the field he could give the Bills another option in the passing game. Buffalo also has Robert Woods and Stevie Johnson on their depth chart.
Williams was stabbed by his brother on March 23 and recently got probation for ciminal mischief. He is also facing a lawsuit stemming from a kitchen fire in a home he rented which caused an alleged $54,453 worth of damages.
In 54 career game with Tampa Bay, Williams has 215 receptions for 2,947 yards and 25 touchdowns.
