Buffalo Bills acquire WR Mike Williams for a sixth-round pick

The Buffalo Bills have traded a sixth-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for wide receiver Mike Williams, reports ESPN’s James Walker.

Williams made headlines in March after he was treated for a stab wound in the thigh that was the result of an attack by his brother.

Williams recent trouble with the law caught the attention of Buccaneers new head coach Lovie Smith.

There’s a pattern here and it’s disturbing. No one is bigger than this football team,” Smith said in February, via the Tampa Bay Times. “He has to understand that.”

Williams  faces trespassing and criminal mischief charges after an incident in December.

The 26-year-old Williams grew up in Buffalo and attended college at Syracuse University.  He played for Bills head coach Doug Marrone while at Syracuse.

Williams, who suffered a hamstring injury in October, had 22 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns in six games last season.

Williams joins Stevie Johnson, T.J. Graham, Marquise Goodwin and Robert Woods at receiver for the Bills.
