  • Mike Williams could head to Oakland?

    Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, who is fond of USC athletes, having once coached at the school, could be preparing to enlist Mike Williams, the former Trojans receiver who is desirous of severing his association with the Detroit Lions.


    Williams, a first-round selection in 2005, has with drawn from the Detroit club's off season conditioning program in the hope that the Lions will cut him and he could be reunited in Oakland with Lane Kiffin, who coached him at USC.

      This would be great for Oakland! Unless of course the rumored Josh McCown trade goes through which would push Mike Williams to the bench....

        I hope for Mike Williams' sake that he does end up on another team. Say what you will about Williams but Detroit hasn't given this kid a chance in my opinion. When he was on the field for the Lions he actually didn't look half bad. I saw him catch a few slants and I couldn't figure out why they had buried him on the bench. Weight issues aside, this guy is a baller and I think it's WAY too early to call him a bust. Wait until he's in a situation where coaches like him and will give him a chance to perform.

          Please let this not happen. The last thing the Raiders need is another lazy WR.

            Getting reunited with Lane would be a great thing for him... I'd like to see it happen.

              Are they running WCO though?

              I think Williams needs to go to a WCO team to really harnish his strengths.

                Mike Williams didn't do so bad, as a rookie, in a WCO. At least in comparison to other rookie receivers, that is. I hope he turns it around and succeeds. That won't happen until he leaves Detroit.

                  Shiver, do you think Mike Williams going into a WCO as essentially a rookie will help him? I know familiarity with the HC will do him good, but can he really be expected to do much?

                    I doubt this happens. As much as I want it to.

                      He has been in a WCO, back under the Mariucci regime.

                        I'd like to see him make something out of his career.

                          He was in one, but he didn't have much on-field experience in one. He was inactive for a number of games that season. I'm not certain how much his mental reps from 3 years ago will carry over.

                            Wait, Kiffin is running WCO?

                            Then what the hell is the point of getting Russel?

                              Kiffin is calling plays and knows his strengths/weaknesses. I think this would be a low risk really high reward for Oakland.
                              Love those who love you but don't let love f*ck up your vision. How much love did your loved ones have when you were broke or doing time in prison? RIP MAC DRE
