Bills acquire wideout Williams from Bucs for sixth-round pick
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills have acquired receiver Mike Williams in a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
FOX Sports 1 Insider Mike Garafolo and other media report the Bucs received a sixth-round pick in return.
It’s a homecoming for Williams, who grew up in Buffalo and played at Syracuse under current Bills coach Doug Marrone.
The trade comes a little over a week after Williams ran into off-field trouble. He was allegedly stabbed in the leg by his brother, Eric Baylor, who has since turned himself in to police.
The Buccaneers signed Williams to a six-year, $40 million contract before last season. Injuries, however, limited him to playing just six games last year.
