Larry Fitzgerald: Bucs WR Mike Williams is "already a phenomenal player."

27

October

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has already established himself as one of the NFL’s top receivers. And the four-time Pro Bowler really likes what he sees in Bucs rookie WR Mike Williams. Fitzgerald, on a conference call with Tampa Bay media Wednesday, first joked he wouldn’t compliment the former Syracuse star too much, considering he attended Pittsburgh. But then Fitzgerald raved:

“I’ve been blown away by his poise,” Fitzgerald said. “He really knows how to run routes. He catches the ball extremely well. He’s got unbelievable body control. Definitely in the red zone, I’ve seen him make terrific catches. But he’s going to be a phenomenal player. He’s already a phenomenal player. But his future is extremely bright.”
