Mike Williams says his brother stabbed him on accident


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are trying to move away from their image as an awful football franchise, but even after hiring a new head coach, firing their front office and literally changing their logo so no one recognizes them, the same old problems have followed the new Bucs.

Troubled wide receiver Mike Williams was stabbed in the leg over the weekend and taken to the hospital as a result. While there were a ton of questions as to just how a multi-million dollar wide receiver got stabbed in the leg, Williams is offering up some answers to police.

Apparently his brother stabbed him and it was a complete accident. Williams reportedly told police that he was roughhousing with his brother when he was accidentally stabbed in the thigh.

Per FOXSports:

A source who spoke with Williams following the incident said Williams claimed he didn’t want to press charges against his brother, 23-year-old Eric Baylor. Baylor is not in custody.

The problem seems to be that police are getting differing stories from those who witnessed the apparent playful fight that resulted in a professional athlete getting stabbed in the leg. We clearly don’t know the full story but the Buccaneers can’t be pleased yet another offseason is being bogged down by off-field issues.
