Bucs receiver Mike Williams said he sent numerous text messages to coach Raheem Morris Monday apologizing for his poor performance in the club’s humiliating 48-3 loss to the 49ers last Sunday according to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.
The Syracuse product had a critical penalty, dropped a pass and lost a fumble against the 49ers. After five games, he has only one touchdown reception and is averaging 9.6 yards per reception. A year ago, he led all rookies with 11 scores and averaged 14.8 yards per snag.
“I’m playing terrible,” Williams said Wednesday. “To my aspect, I’m playing terrible. I should be doing a lot more to make my team win, I should be getting in the end zone. That’s something I did last year was get into the end zone, put up points for this team and that’s what I should be doing and I’m not doing it right now so I’ve got to get it together.”
“Like I said, this week, you’re going to see the old Mike Williams back. Like I told Raheem, I’m back now.”
