Mike Williams — yes, that Mike Williams — heading to CFL

Mike Williams

Just how many football lives does Mike Williams have?

You remember Williams: 6-foot-5 wide receiver; played at USC for Pete Carroll; first-round draft choice by the Lions in 2005; out of the league for two seasons; led the Seahawks in receptions in 2010 after being given a minicamp tryout by his former college coach.

Yeah, that Mike Williams. He’s looking to jumpstart his career, again, this time in the CFL with the defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts. The club has announced the signing of Williams, who’s still only 29 despite all his tribulations and triumphs in the NFL.

Williams’ stay with the Seahawks was well-documented. From that successful tryout in April of 2010. To that 65-catch season, and the contract extension that followed. To the injuries and additions of other receivers that helped lead to his release last July.
