Bucs preseason schedule released, Williams looms in third week

Bills receiver Mike Williams can begin to exact a measure of revenge against the Bucs in the third week of the preseason when Tampa Bay visits Buffalo.

That was among the highlights to the Bucs' preseason schedule, which was released Wednesday. Date and times of the games will be announced at a later time.

Williams was traded to the Bills for a sixth-round pick in next month's NFL draft.

The Bucs open the preseason Week 1 at Jacksonville before hosting the Miami Dolphins, another state rival, at Raymond James Stadium.

Tampa Bay will then travel to Buffalo to meet Williams and the Bills before wrapping up the preseason by hosting the Washington Redskins. The preseason finale will be a homecoming of sorts for New Redskins head coach Jay Gruden.

Since starters typically play into the third quarter of the third preseason game, Williams could see plenty of action against his former team.
