Tyrell Williams would now not solutions taking part in second fiddle to one of the most productive receivers within the NFL.
The fresh Raiders broad receiver mentioned Wednesday that joining Antonio Brown became as soon as allotment of what enticed him to switch to Oakland.
“Seeing AB reach here, seeing just a few of the issues they’re doing on the offensive aspect of the ball, or no longer it’s challenging,” Williams mentioned, via NBC Sports Bay Region. “I’ve long previous against the Raiders the previous four years, so or no longer it’s an effortless transition for me.”
Williams inked a four-year, $44 million contract with $22 million in ensures, per NFL Community’s Tom Pelissero.
Spending the significant four years of his career with the Chargers, Williams conducted within the attend of Keenan Allen, so he’s stale to a complementary role. Williams believes taking part in subsequent to Brown will equally inaugurate change chances to originate plays.
“Antonio’s going to design change consideration,” Williams mentioned. “After they’re doubling him I will most likely be ready to assemble a solo matchup. I am positively gazing for that.”
Heading into free agency, Williams became as soon as considered as one of the principal tip receivers hitting the market. Namely his play in 2016, when Allen uncared for all but one sport, stood out to signify the posthaste Williams would possibly maybe maybe thrive in a bigger role. The season Allen largely uncared for became as soon as Williams’ lone 1,000-yard year. With Allen, Mike Williams and others within the fold in L.A., Tyrell Williams didn’t see noteworthy of the goal share.
In Oakland, he’ll reach in well within the attend of Brown in targets but can appreciate to see a bigger share in an offense that desperately wishes playmakers. We seen JuJu Smith-Schuster feast off Brown garnering many of the defensive consideration. Williams’ deep velocity can appreciate to warrant a few images a sport with safeties rolling over to attend on Brown.
“As a receiver all americans wants the ball, but I possess all of us are going to appreciate alternatives to assemble the ball and originate plays in this offense,” Williams mentioned. “I appreciate a broad ****** to be taught from one of the most productive receivers within the game, so why no longer attain it?”
Williams would possibly maybe maybe no longer be on JuJu’s level but can appreciate to aloof be a significant fragment for the Raiders’ offense in 2019, and is with out problems a significant upgrade to a procedure of need in Jon Gruden’s offense.
