Mike Williams: Punt ReturnerJuly 24th, 2013
Bucs fans attending the first training camp practice tomorrow might want to watch the guys fielding punts during special teams drills. One of them will be the Bucs’ newest eight-figure earner, Mike Williams.
Joe had a chance to talk about all things special teams with new special teams coach Dave Wannstedt today, and Wannstedt said Williams will be in the mix in the “wide open” punt returner competition.
Last season, and during the Raheem Morris administration, Joe saw Williams practicing as a punt returner, but it was very limited work.
Williams has the good hands necessary to be successful. Whether he can be dangerous is unknown. Williams did not return punts at Syracuse.
There’s also another Buccaneer who was once a hell of a punt returner, but the New Schiano Order will never give him a shot. See the Darrelle Revis video below.
