WR Mike Williams inks 3-year deal

Seahawks receiver Mike Williams had a smile on his face this afternoon. He confirmed earlier reports, stating he signed a 3-year contract extension with the Seahawks on Saturday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“I really wasn’t even thinking about it,” Williams said the agreement. “I was just thinking about having a good year and trying to play well, and everything else would take care of itself.

“And that’s exactly what happened.”

After a two year absence from the league, Williams put together his best season as a pro, finishing as Seattle’s leading receiver with 65 catches for 751 yards and two touchdowns.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that it was important to lock Williams up, and that it shows that the Seahawks are committed to players that show commitment to them on the field.

“I hope it’s a very obvious statement,” Carroll said. “I hope it’s a clear statement of guys fighting for who they are and what they want to become. And there’s nothing more powerful than that kind of will behind a guy’s efforts.

“So we want to make sure that’s clear. And so hopefully this will ring loud and clear for a lot of people in the program.”
