Tragic Loss: Ex-NFL Star Mike Williams Passes Away at 36

Breaking News: Former NFL wide receiver Mike Williams tragically passes away at the age of 36.

According to his agent, Hadley Engelhard, Williams passed away this morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, Florida.

Williams’ untimely death follows a devastating accident at a construction site in Hillsborough County, leaving him partially paralyzed. The Tampa Bay Times reported that he was recently removed from a ventilator, as confirmed by the mother of his 8-year-old daughter, Tierney Lyle.

Originally from Buffalo, New York, Williams made a name for himself at Syracuse University before making his mark in the NFL.

In 2010, Williams burst onto the scene as a fourth-round pick for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, racking up an impressive 65 catches, 964 yards, and 11 touchdowns. His touchdown-reception record set a single-season club milestone, earning him second place in Offensive Rookie of the Year voting.

The Buccaneers expressed their sorrow in a statement, saying, “We are saddened to hear of the untimely death of Mike Williams, which has left our organization, his former teammates, and fans with heavy hearts. We send our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones as they mourn this tragedy.”

During his career, Williams showcased his talent with 223 catches, 3,089 yards, and 26 touchdowns in 63 games (52 starts) across four seasons with the Buccaneers and one season with the Buffalo Bills (2014).

Although his time in the NFL ended in 2016, Williams will always be remembered for his contributions to the sport and his impact on the teams he played for.
