Seattle wide receiver Mike Williams made one of the more remarkable comebacks to the NFL last year, grabbing 65 catches after being out of football for two seasons. His maturation and recognition of what nearly cost him his career are among the subjects he speaks to on the Cover Two Podcast this week.
Williams discusses his lingering toe injury that has limited him in the preseason, how his role is being impacted by the additions of Sidney Rice and Zach Miller as well as the quarterback competition between Charlie Whitehurst and Tarvaris Jackson. To Williams, the starter has already been decided.
You’ll also want to hear his take on who he thinks could be an inspirational breakout player like he was last season. It’s not a Seahawks player and Williams’ take is pretty moving.
The Colts’ signing of veteran quarterback Kerry Collins points to several things, namely starter Peyton Manning might not be ready to start the season and that current backup Curtis Painter isn’t up to the task. There is something bigger and more important, though, in regard to the team that my co-host Bucky Brooks and I point out.
Brooks gives his take on Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson being back on the field after having seizures early in training camp and how he could make a huge difference in the “Dream Team’s” defense.
Lastly, if you had to choose: Fred Jackson or C.J. Spiller; Kevin Kolb or Colt McCoy; Tramon Williams or Brent Grimes; Whitehurst or Jackson, who do you want? Hear what we have to say on the Cover Two Podcast.
