Raiders Coach Tom Cable Impressed By Mike Williams

Believe it or not, Mike Williams spent some time in Oakland before falling out of the league. Williams, who was unceremoniously dropped by the Raiders after doing the same to a fourth down pass, spent less than a year in the Bay Area in 2007. Today Williams is back in action, looking better than ever catching passes in a Seahawks uniform.

The Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neil caught up with Cable and asked about Williams’ Oakland stint and his impression of the receiver now.

Cable: I’m not ever really surprised when a guy has proven it at a high level in college, I think it’s always there for him. How they get sidetracked or lose focus or whatever, that’s their business, but I think the thing that you’ve got to admire is he’s able to turn his career around. That tells you he’s got great character, and he’s kind of looked in the mirror: ‘If I want to do this, I’ve got to straighten up.’ Or whatever that is, and he’s done those things. So you’ve got to take your hat off to him.

Williams continues to impress people along the way during his rise this season. He’s emerged as a favorite target of quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and has been dependable in the clutch.

Next stop for the Mike Williams reclamation tour: Oakland this Sunday at 1:15 p.m.
