ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Receiver Mike Williams acknowledges he has some growing up to do while addressing questions about his troubled past.
For Williams, there's no place better to start fresh than in his hometown after being acquired by the Buffalo Bills in a trade with Tampa Bay on Friday.
Williams calls the homecoming ''a dream come true.''
It's also regarded as a second - and potentially final - chance for Williams to put behind off-field distractions that led to his departure after four seasons with the Buccaneers, and a year after he signed a six-year, $40 million contract.
The breaking point in Tampa came two weeks ago, when Williams was allegedly stabbed in the leg by his brother, Eric Baylor, who has since turned himself in to police.
