Mike Williams WR BUF 1 Month

Mike Williams' brother, 23-year-old Eric Baylor, has turned himself into police after allegedly stabbing Williams in the left thigh Sunday.

Baylor was immediately arrested on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Williams told police the stabbing took place accidentally "during a wrestling match" -- in an apparent attempt to protect his brother -- but authorities aren't buying it. Baylor fled and was missing until Monday night. New Bucs GM Jason Licht told reporters at the league meetings Monday that he was "disappointed" to learn of Williams' latest off-field incident. Williams may have played his last snap in Tampa.

The Tampa Bay Times reports police do not consider Mike Williams' Sunday stabbing accidental, and have issued an arrest warrant for his brother.

Williams claimed he was accidentally stabbed during "horseplay" with his brother, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Williams suffered only minor injuries, and was released from the hospital on Sunday. Speaking Monday, Bucs GM Jason Licht said the team had yet to hear from Williams "despite reaching out to him." Williams' days with the Bucs are numbered.

Mike Williams (thigh) was released from the hospital late Sunday night.

According to police, Williams was stabbed in the left thigh with a kitchen knife by his brother while they were "roughhousing." Luckily, it's being described as a relatively minor laceration. It doesn't sound like Williams will be fighting any long-term injuries, but he remains on thin ice with the Bucs thanks to off-field issues he's been battling since his Syracuse days.

Bucs WR Mike Williams has been hospitalized in Tampa after he was allegedly stabbed in the thigh by his brother.

The stabbing took place Sunday afternoon in Williams' "exclusive" home in a gated community. Police are reportedly searching for Williams' brother. Although early reports suggest Williams was a victim in this particular incident, he's endured a tumultuous offseason. He pleaded not guilty to trespassing and criminal mischief charges in February, and new Bucs coach Lovie Smith a month ago described Williams' pattern of behavior as "disturbing."

After entering a written plea of not guilty Monday, Mike Williams is due in court for a pre-trial hearing on March 27 regarding his recent arrest on charges of trespassing and criminal mischief.

On December 13, Williams caused $200 in damage to the front door of Gabrielle Edwards' home. The charges are misdemeanors and should be resolved before March 27, according to Williams' attorney. It's not a major issue but is just the latest misstep from Williams. Coach Lovie Smith recently called Williams' behavior "disturbing."

New Bucs coach Lovie Smith calls Mike Williams' recent pattern of behavior "disturbing."

"No one is bigger than this football team," Smith said. "He has to understand that. ... There's a standard. We're just not going to put up with it, no matter who it is. You have to be good on the field and off the field. Simple as that." Williams was reportedly fined more than $200,000 for missing team meetings and rehab assignments last season, and is starting to rack up off-the-field issues. The fact that cutting Williams would generate a $6.4 million cap hit means his roster spot is likely safe, but the time to start making a good impression on the new brain trust is now.

The Tampa Bay Times reports Bucs WR Mike Williams has an arraignment on Feb. 24 on misdemeanor criminal mischief and trespassing charges.

The charges stem from an unspecified December incident. It's just the latest misstep from Williams, who reportedly totaled more than $200,000 in fines for being late to meetings or missing scheduled rehab days following his Week 8 torn hamstring. Williams entered the league with character concerns, but hasn't had any off-field issues since his rookie season. He's due just a $1.2 million base salary in 2014.

The Bucs would have to eat a $6.4 million cap hit if they released Mike Williams.

The subject of cutting Williams is in the news due to a report that questioned his dedication to football. If Greg Schiano and Mark Dominik had returned, the report said Syracuse Mike would have needed a "great" camp to avoid the chopping block. However, he's due just $1.2 million in 2014 base salary and the new Bucs regime headed by Lovie Smith figures to wipe the slate clean. Williams will almost certainly be lined up opposite Vincent Jackson come Week 1.
