After spending a year out of football, former Seattle Seahawks receiver Mike Williams resurfaced north of the border, signing a deal to play with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.

Williams, a former first round selection by Detroit in 2005 draft, made a successful return to the NFL after conditioning and a lack of motivation forced him to sit out two years.

Making Seattle’s roster in his former coach at USC Pete Carroll’s first year with the Seahawks in 2010, Williams surprisingly led Seattle in receptions with 65 catches for 751 yards and two touchdowns.

However, Williams could not stay healthy in 2011, playing in 12 games and finishing with just 18 catches for 236 yards and a touchdown.

The Seahawks ultimately decided to release the USC product before the 2012 season started, allowing Golden Tate to take over as the team’s starting split end.

    Good luck

  2. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Nothing more annoying to me is Mike Williams stupid poses after just one catch.

  3. I’ll be surprised if he makes the Argos’ roster. I’m also surprised he didn’t get a sniff from another NFL team.

    If he’s back in shape, the dude is a baller. Of course, that’s a big if.
