Mike Williams has high hopes for his upcoming season with the New York Jets

The New York Jets generated immense excitement among their fanbase with the signing of former Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams. Adding a big-time complement to Garrett Wilson cemented an impressive free agency period for Joe Douglas and company.

Williams seems just as excited for the upcoming year as Jets fans. Speaking to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the 29-year-old contested catch maestro described his lofty goals for the 2024 season.

“My goals is to get healthy, and, you know, I’m going on Year 8, I want to win a Super Bowl. Whatever it takes to do that, I’m willing to do whatever it takes to be the last team standing, holding that trophy up at the end. Whatever that takes. And I want to be available for every game. Those are my goals for this season.”

Williams also talked about where he is in his recovery from the ACL injury he suffered in September.

“Well I’m like 4.5 months out, 5 months out. So I should be ready – I will be ready for Week 1 of the season. That’s my goal. Everything’s looking good. Got a meeting with my doctor here next week. Take some more steps, keep building, and make my way up there.”

Williams tore his ACL on September 24 in the third quarter of a game against the Minnesota Vikings. He underwent surgery one month later.

For Jets fans, it’s great to hear that Williams is focused on his availability as one of his primary goals for the 2024 season. Williams has only played one full season in his seven-year career, which was back in 2018 – although the only game he missed in 2021 was due to a COVID-19 outbreak, and he missed just one game in the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

Williams played 75 games over a five-season span from 2018-2022 (15.0 games per season), so his injury track record is far from brutal. However, Williams has long-standing issues related to his back and neck, and he has frequently experienced minor injuries (particularly to his back) that caused him to exit games early.

Health is by far the biggest factor for Williams entering his 2024 season with the Jets. The talent is clearly there – since 2021, he’s 12th among WRs (min. 20 GP) in receiving yards per game (71.6) and first in contested catches per game (1.3). New York just needs him to be on the field.

Fortunately, Williams seems determined to do whatever he can to maximize his chances of being on the field for every game.
