But if you go back through the stat sheets just a bit further, you’ll notice that Williams hasn’t always been an underperforming wide receiver. During a two-year stretch that began in 2006, the former Texas standout caught 146 passes for 2,148 yards and 12 touchdowns and even went so far as to earn himself a spot in the Pro Bowl.

His offensive coordinator during that stretch: Mike Martz.

The offensive coordinator on the team that signed Williams Friday morning: Mike Martz.

Adam Schefter is reporting that Williams and the Chicago Bears have come to an agreement on a contract. The details of said contract have yet to be released.

For Williams, it’s a shot at redemption. As for the Bears, the very real possibility exists that the team finally landed a legitimate No. 1 wideout.
