Buccaneers WR Mike Williams had tonsil surgery
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams was the subject of such a surgery this offseason. Williams posted a picture of himself in surgery today via Instagram but there is no reason for serious concern. It so happens to be that Williams underwent only tonsil surgery on Tuesday after facing a recurring issue with his tonsils during the offseason.
He made a visit to the hospital earlier this offseason which created some concern, until it turned out he was facing an issues with tonsils. So Williams decided to nip the issue in the bud with the surgery on Tuesday, well before his tonsils developed into a bigger problem during the busy season with the Buccaneers.
The 26-year-old Williams bracing to enter his contract year but is expected to ink his next deal beforehand, since he is currently in talks with the Bucs for a contract extension. Recently, Williams said he was “very close” to reaching an agreement over a salary package. The tonsil surgery isn’t expected to get in the way of deal, nor will it have any impact on Williams’ readiness for the start of the 2013 season.
Selected in the fourth round of the 2010 draft by the Buccaneers, Williams has been a regular starter for the team since his rookie season. He has started all but one game over the past three seasons. He has 193 career receptions for 2,731 yards and 23 touchdowns with the Bucs.
