Raheem Morris Challenges WR Williams To Step Up

The Patriots took it to the starters for the Buccaneers last week and one group Raheem Morris went after was his wide receivers. According to Mike Williams, who starred as a rookie last season, Morris came after him strong after he was shut down by Devin McCourty.

“(He) called the receivers out as a group because he called us the leader of the bus,” Williams said, according to the St. Petersburg Times. “But he really called me out for real. He told me, ‘(With) man coverage, we’re going to the X. That’s where you have to go.’”

Williams slipped to the fourth round last season because there were character concerns. No complaints came out of Tampa and by all reports he was the pro the team needed. It sounds like Morris is challenging him to step up his game in his second season when he won’t sneak up on any defensive backs as an unknown performer.

“On some plays, I don’t know, I guess you could say I got gloved up,” Williams said. “(On) some plays, it was just a lot of pressure. But he basically called me out and said I have to win quickly and do like I did last year.”
