Mike Williams, Jets Agree to One-Year Contract, per Report

The New York Jets are adding another key weapon for Aaron Rodgers to throw to in 2024.

The Jets and veteran wide receiver Mike Williams have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The contract with New York will be worth up to $15 million. 

Williams, 29, visited the Jets on Tuesday and reportedly was set to meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers before making a decision on his future, but it seems he was convinced during his trip to the Jets facility, agreeing to a one-year deal.

Williams is entering his eighth NFL season, having played the first seven years of his career with the Los Angeles Chargers. The former first-round pick registered 31 touchdowns receptions in 88 games with the franchise before parting ways this offseason.

Mike Williams recorded 309 catches for 4,806 yards in seven seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers.

An ACL injury suffered in September cost Williams all but three games in 2023, though he still managed 19 catches, 249 yards and a touchdown before getting sidelined. In ’22, he recorded 63 receptions for 895 yards and four touchdowns. 

Now, he’ll line up for the Jets alongside star wide receiver Garrett Wilson, providing New York with a formidable one-two punch at the position.
