The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have floundered down the stretch in 2012, and their quarterback Josh Freeman hasn't necessarily shown any improvement from a disastrous 2011.
However, young wideout Mike Williams has rebounded nicely.
Despite Freeman's relatively inconsistent play, the third-year receiver has reeled in 50 catches for 799 yards and seven touchdowns.
Although Vincent Jackson is the team's unquestioned No. 1 receiver, Williams is a more than adequate complement who makes plays in the red zone and is only 25 years old.
He made $540,000 this year and will make $575,000 in 2013.
For a player with his size, potential and productivity, the former Syracuse standout should be signing a lucrative contract extension in the near future.
