When the Chargers selected former Clemson star wideout Mike Williams No. 7 overall in last year’s NFL Draft, they thought they were getting a potential superstar.
It didn’t work out that way Year 1 for the 6-3, 220-pound red-zone threat, with Williams hauling in just 11 passes for 95 yards and zero touchdowns as a rookie.
The Steelers used the franchise tag on Bell for the second straight year, which thus far has prompted the veteran rusher to repeat his stance from last year, when he sat out offseason workouts and training camp until he signed the tender just before the start of the regular season.

Curry scored 35 points with five 3-pointers, shooting over James Harden and driving past him as the Golden State Warriors made a second-half statement to beat the Rockets 126-85 on Sunday night for a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals.
Curry had 18 points on 7-for-7 shooting in the third quarter, lying with his back flat on the court for his unique version of a snow angel and even following one basket with an expletive, shouting “This is my … house!” to the thousands who cheered and exhaled, exhilarated by his every move and rumble.
“There’s obviously that anticipation when you come in transition and you find an open look and there’s a collective hush in the crowd, especially in this building,” Curry said. “It’s a cool moment. I was searching for it in the first half. I had plenty of opportunities, I just couldn’t knock it down. Third quarter it opened up. I’ve been doing it for a while. I won’t let two tough games shooting keep me frustrated.”
