Monday links: Can Williams fulfill his vast potential in Seattle?

An obvious storyline of Seattle’s 31-10 win over the Chargers Thursday was the play of receiver Stephen Williams, who had two catches for 83 yards, both on deep balls that traveled in the air more than the listed distance — 41 and 42 .

I wrote about Williams for today’s paper.

In a quote that didn’t make the story, I asked Williams what happened during his three years in Arizona.

“I mean, they seen the talents,” he said. “They kept me over there for three years. Just opportunities and the numbers game. You are not going to take Larry Fitzgerald out of the game at any time. You’ve just got to be patient sometimes. It’s a waiting game in the league, too. Sometimes you’ve got to take a back seat and lean. Aaron Rodgers sat for four years behind Brett Favre before he got his opportunity.”

Here also is our camp glance for today’s paper.
