Mike Williams, Former First Rounder in 2005, Cut By Third Team

What's worst of all about that, the Titans cut him. And the Titans have the worst receiving corps in the NFL. As if that weren't bad enough Williams was released by the Raiders last October. Since being drafted by the Detroit Lions as the 10th overall pick in the 2005 Draft, Williams has been released by three bad teams. All of whom questioned his work ethic. How much lower could you go? Well, your former college teammate at USC, LenDale White, could compare you to Ryan Leaf. Per the Tennessean:

"No disrespect to Mike Williams, I love Mike Williams, but he is going to have show people that he is really serious about playing football,'' said running back LenDale White, who was a teammate of Williams at USC. "Unfortunately, they might be talking about him like Ryan Leaf as one of the worst draft decisions.''


Lost in the shuffle of all of this is Williams' connection to Maurice Clarett. Williams only played for two years at USC after making himself eligible for the draft in 2004. His draft status was stayed due to a ruling in the Maurice Clarett case and Williams sat out of football for a year before being selected by the Lions. He's no Clarett but together they make a pretty horrible tandem of picks. United in challenging the NFL's three year rule. Hopefully, at 24, Williams still has his signing bonus money. Because his football career may well be over. Titans cut wide receiver Williams [Tennessean]
