Bills land WR Williams in trade with Bucs

TAMPA - The Buffalo Bills have acquired receiver Mike Williams in a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs will get a sixth round draft pick from the Bills as part of the deal.

It's a homecoming for Williams, who grew up in Buffalo and played at Syracuse under current Bills coach Doug Marrone.

The trade comes a little over a week after Williams ran into off-field trouble. He was allegedly stabbed in the leg by his brother, Eric Baylor, who has since turned himself in to police.

The Buccaneers signed Williams to a six-year, $40 million contract before last season. Injuries, however, limited him to playing just six games last year.
