Still quiet on the Williams front



The Bucs have had a chat with the representatives for free agent receiver Mike Williams, but that appears to be the extent of the story for now.

Williams, who was waived last week by the Raiders, is a former first-round draft pick of the Lions and a Tampa native. He worked out for the Titans earlier this week, according to his agent, Sean Kiernan, but the Bucs haven't discussed the possibility of a workout just yet.

That is normally the first step in determining whether a player is a candidate to join your team, so until the Bucs at least grant Williams a workout, the former Plant High star a long way from joining his hometown team.

"We have talked to them," Kiernan said, "but their interest level, that we don't know right now."

The Bucs don't have a lot of room at receiver with Michael Clayton returning after this weekend's bye and Maurice Stovall making a case for more playing time. Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard have played well as starters.
