    Lions | M. Williams fined more than $400,000 in 2005
    Wed, 19 Jul 2006 21:51:37 -0700

    Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com, reports Detroit Lions WR Mike Williams was fined more than $400,000 last year, according to a source close to the situation. Williams was fined for violating team rules, mostly for arriving late to meetings and being overweight. According to the terms of the CBA, the team could impose a maximum penalty of $457 per pound per day that Williams was overweight and could fine a player $9,300 each time he was late for a meeting. Those fines could then be doubled or tripled for repeat violations. It is unknown how many times those fines were used against Williams. Since fines are imposed after taxes, Williams had to earn more than $600,000 to pay them. With his salary last season at $230,000 and his salary in 2006 at $350,000, he is playing for free in his first two seasons if you don't count bonus money. This year, the fines have been increased to $582 per pound per day and $11,000 for being late to a meeting.



    I am really glad that the Chargers did not draft this guy.

    What a dumbass.

    I would have only charged him an annual salary of $200,000 to make Jenny Craig meals and be his alarm clock.

    Glad we didnt draft this bust. I guess he thinks he is so rich he doesnt care to even maintain his weight to play in the NFL.

    Another USC underachiever!
