TAMPA BAY (WIVB) - Riverside grad Mike Williams is all smiles today, signing a six-year, $40.25 million contract extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Williams, a wide receiver entering his fourth year in the NFL, caught 63 passes for 996 yards and 9 TD's last season.
In three seasons, he has piled up 2,731 yards and 23 touchdowns. Only Cowboys star Dez Bryant has produced better numbers out of that 2010 NFL Draft class.
Williams was a fourth-round pick that year, but he says he is no longer using that as motivation.
"I kind of put it on my shoulder, a chip on my shoulder to prove everybody wrong, but then I thought about it. Just be Mike, show them who you really are," said Williams.
He'll get a chance to suit up against the Bills this year, with the two teams playing in Tampa in Week 14.
