The Buffalo Bills have officially stated that WR Mike Williams has requested a trade out of Buffalo.
The Bills sat Williams out on Sunday, a decision that coach Doug Marrone called “tough” while saying it was determined by the need to dress players who play on special teams.
Matthew Fairbun of Syracuse.com reports that Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said that Williams’s agent called him to ask for permission to look for a team interested in trading for his client. Whaley said that the team is not going to actively shop the WR, who they acquired from Tampa in a trade for a sixth-round pick in the offseason, but that they would entertain the idea if they received “fair compensation.”
Williams started 47 out of 48 games in his first 3 seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, accumulating over 2700 receiving yards and 23 TDs and averaging 14.2 yards/reception. A season ending injury in 2013 made him expendable and he was traded to the Bills for a 6th round selection.
In 5 games played so far in 2014, Williams has 8 receptions for 142 yards and a TD.
