Mike Williams, Bucs Not At OddsJuly 13th, 2013
Yesterday on Twitter, Bucs wide receiver Mike Williams, who is in the process of contract extension negotiations with the Bucs, had a cryptic rant Joe couldn’t make heads or tails of.
In his screed, nowhere were the words “Bucs,” “contract,” “negotiations,” or “Dominik” used. So to Joe, it was not clear what Williams ranted about. This didn’t stop some from trafficking in guesswork adding two and two and coming out with seven, thinking the Bucs and Williams had come to some sort of dicey impasse in the contract talks.
This didn’t seem to sit well with Williams as he took to Twitter again today, and denied there was any ill will with the Bucs.
@Mikebuc19: These guys should stop this reading between the lines stuff if you really want to know….. I’M TALKING ABOUT ME AND MY BABY MOTHER AND HER FAMILY GOING THREW [sic] IT just ask and I will tell you what I’m talking about never once mention those words yall talking about I don’t even know what is going on don’t c how yall do. REMEMBER WHAT “ASSUME” MAKES LOL
For clarity on the issue, Joe texted a trusted Bucs source who told Joe that if there is any friction between the Bucs and Williams’ agent, Hadley Englehard, that it’s news to the Bucs.So those thinking that Williams might hold out or he is hacked off at the team, fear not.
You may resume your previously programmed weekend of alcohol consumption.
