This isn’t the first time I’m mentioning Mike Williams as a possible free agent addition to the Dolphins. I had him in my 5 top free agents article from a few weeks ago(I completely understand if you’re annoyed that I keep mentioning stuff I’ve already written). I honestly don’t think Williams leaves Los Angeles, and he will certainly command a large amount of money, but the Dolphins should certainly see if they can convince the 27-year-old receiver to come to South Beach.
Williams would be the ultimate compliment to Jaylen Waddle and would essentially be a better more durable DeVante Parker. Williams is large, 6’4 218LBs, and runs really well. It seemed like every week last year that Williams was catching a bomb from that guy named Herbert. I think Williams would be stellar on the bootlegs where Tua can give him a chance to go up and get it using that big frame of his.
Also if the RPO is still happening in this Mike McDaniel-themed offense, something I think will still be there in some capacity, then the quick slant is quite important. Williams has the get-off and speed to get inside and again use that big body of his to shield defenders to get to the ball.
I love Williams because of his big-play potential. Williams had 28 fewer catches than Waddle but had 131 yards more receiving. He has the ability to put up stat lines such as three catches for 91 yards and a 64 yard TD. It be nice to have a guy that can go 50+ yards on one catch here and there. We know Waddle can do that as well, but having two guys that can do that would be outstanding.
