Lovie: No Plans To Cut Mike WilliamsMarch 25th, 2014
Tampa Tribune Bucs beat writer Roy Cummings shared, via Twitter, word from the Bucs head coach at the NFL Owners meetings in Orlando.
@RcummingsTBO – Bucs coach Lovie Smith says there are no plans to kick Mike Williams off the team. Says that as far as he knows, Williams was a victim of an incident and that’s “not going to get you kicked off the football team.”
Joe’s not the least bit surprised. Lovie hasn’t even gotten in front of his team yet to lay out the rules and expectations of the new regime. And what exactly has Williams done, other than show he’s got some questionable judgment and friends and family that don’t always act in his best interest?
Williams is a good football player, which is why there was no detectable moaning when former rockstar general manager gave him a fat contract last summer.
Williams will get a clean slate from Lovie and tight leash, which seems fair and wise to Joe. And for those wondering, Williams and Lovie has spoken, reports Dave Wirth of WTSP-TV, Ch. 10.
