Seahawks Release Wide Receiver Williams

Published on July 17, 2012 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

The Seattle Seahawks have released wide receiver Mike Williams, the team announced this afternoon.

“We would like to thank Mike for his contributions over the past two seasons and we wish him well in the future,” said General Manager John Schneider.

Williams was originally the 10th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions and signed as a free agent with Seattle on April 16, 2010 and signed an extension on January 3, 2011. He also spent time with Oakland and Tennessee during the 2007 season.

He started 23 of 26 games with Seattle, with 83 receptions for 987 yards with five touchdowns and a long of 68. He posted career-highs in catches (65), yards (751) and touchdowns (2) in 2010, and saw his 2011 season cut short, landing on injured reserve (ankle) on December 20. Williams set his career-high in catches with 11 facing the Arizona Cardinals on two occasions (10/24/10 & 11/14/10) and also set a career-high with 145 yards at Arizona (11/14/10).

Williams also holds Seattle’s record for most receiving touchdowns in a single postseason with three (2010).

He has played in 56 games with 30 starts, recording 127 receptions for 1,526 yards with five touchdowns and a long of 68 in his career.
