Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Doug Marrone
One person with a special interest is Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone, who coached Williams at Syracuse. Williams' college career didn't end well. He was suspended for academic impropriety and later quit the football team.
"I've always had a lot of respect for Mike," Marrone said during the AFC coaches breakfast Tuesday morning. "I thought Mike was a heck of a football player. We had a lot of conversations. There were a lot of good things that were going on. I got a lot of calls before the draft and I told those guys that Mike would do well. We've been disconnected obviously from when he left to his time in Tampa. But I liked Mike. I really did. I wish him well. Yesterday, I talked to [Tampa Bay general manager] Jason [Licht] just to see if he was OK. Obviously, I care about Mike."
Williams was stabbed in the thigh. He was treated at a local hospital and released. The Buccaneers have said they're still gathering information about the incident.
