Mike Williams Fails to Make Titans’ Weight Goal

On March 21, 2008, WR Mike Williams was told to get his weight down or he’ll be looking for a new job. Williams’ agent, Sean Kiernan, did not comment on Williams’ weight when questioned, but he said, “As of my last conversation with Mike, he will be in Nashville on Monday participating in the off-season conditioning program. I can’t comment any further than that.”

Thursday, it was reported that Williams’ weight goal was at 250lbs, a feasible goal for the 6’5″ receiver who started in the NFL at 230lbs. And when Williams showed up for his weigh in yesterday, he weighed in at 254lbs. Although Williams’ weight is four pounds over the Titans’ goal, it is 16 pounds less than his weight last season (270lbs) when the Titans signed him around Thanksgiving. Jeff Fisher told the Tennessean, “He worked and it’s obvious. I was pleased with his effort. That’s a good sign.”

The USC standout/NFL bust has yet to prove his NFL worth although given a second chance by the Titans last season. With the Titans in 2007, Williams played in two games without registering a stat. Now the Titans parted ways with 2007 OC Norm Chow, and Williams has to prove himself worthy. Yet Williams, in shape, is an ideal target for QB Vince Young
