The Chargers are signing WR Mike Williams to a three-year, $60 million contract, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday, per a source. The deal includes $40 million guaranteed upon signing, Rapoport adds.
Williams reaches a new deal with the Bolts just ahead of Tuesday’s franchise tag deadline and stays with a blossoming offense headed by star quarterback Justin Herbert.
Selected by the Chargers with the No. 7 overall pick in 2017, Williams is coming off one of his best seasons statistically. The Chargers’ deep threat produced career-highs with 76 receptions and 1,146 receiving yards while adding nine touchdowns. Williams led the team in TDs, receiving yards and yards per reception for the Bolts in 2021.
