Contract negotiations are currently underway with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and receiver Mike Williams, and if all goes as planned for Mike and his agent, he'll be a very happy man. Per the Tampa Bay Times: ' Williams has a few things going for him: He’s young, still just 25-years old. He's durable, never missing any of the 48 games played since he's been on the roster. And he’s been consistent. Despite his dip to just three touchdowns and 771 yards in 2011, widely considered a down year for him, he has averaged 910 yards and 64 catches in his three seasons. ' The referenced story puts a few names out there and the contracts they have in place, something Williams' agent is well aware of as he talks deal with the Bucs. Bills' Stevie Johnson -  five-year, $36 million, slighly more productive than Williams, by not by much. His deal was also ironed out before he hit free agency, which is what both parties are aiming at. Seahawks' Sidney Rice - five-year $41 million, not prodcutive as Williams. Tampa Bay teammate Vincent Jackson - five-year $55 million.
