Seahawks cut WR Mike Williams-- Sat Jul 14 12:55 pm --
Former 10th overall pick released
Mike Williams' career that was reignited with the Seattle Seahawks in 2010 came to an end Friday when he was suddenly cut by the Seahawks two weeks before the start of training camp. Williams was a candidate for Comeback Player of the Year in 2010 after seeing his career rejuvenated by getting a second chance with Pete Carroll and the Seahawks following flops in Detroit and Oakland. But Williams could never develop a connection with new quarterback Tarvaris Jackson in 2011 and his season was cut short by a broken left ankle. (Yahoo Sports)
FF Today's Take:Williams' release will provide even greater opportunity for undrafted wide receiver Doug Baldwin opposite Sidney Rice. Baldwin could be a productive late-round steal with moderate upside this year.
