WR Williams Looking For More Playing Time in Season Two

After leading USC in receiving in 2008 and 2009, playing in a reserve role was a foreign experience for Titans 2010 third-round wide receiver Damian Williams.

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to be on the field more,” Williams said according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

“But I feel that is the case with everybody in the league. If you are not playing a whole lot, you want to be playing a whole lot or you wouldn’t be playing the game. But that’s OK. I still think my rookie year went great. I got to experience a lot of different things, the high and the lows of the season.”

Williams was active for all 16 games, and even made one start, catching 16 passes for 219 yards. While those numbers weren’t particularly impressive, the Titans had a tumultuous season at the quarterback position, and Williams was behind veterans Nate Washington, Justin Gage, mid-season acquisition Randy Moss, and 2009 first-round pick Kenny Britt.

Williams’ 28 targets were the fourth-most among Titans receivers.

Along with 2008 fourth-round pick Lavelle Hawkins and 2010 seventh-round pick Marc Mariani, Williams will be competing with Gage for playing time behind projected starters Washington and Britt.
