|One particular Buccaneer’s postings on Instagram really concerned the team during this past football season, and nearly cost him his roster spot. Fresh off signing a six-year, $40.25-million contract extension in the summer of 2013, wide receiver Mike Williams was placed on injured reserve in Week 9 with a torn hamstring. Since his injury, Williams has documented his partying and his new career as a rapper for all the public to see on his Instagram account.
FFToday's Take: Williams reportedly racked up 200K in fines for missing rehab assignments and team meetings in 2013. The Bucs tailored Williams' contract so he can be released this off-season if they believed his dedication to football wasn't adequate. Now that a new regime is in place, he may get the benefit of the doubt and chance to rededicate himself during off-season workouts.
