NFL Star Mike Williams Shock Cause Of Death Revealed
Former NFL star Mike Williams, an ex-Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver, has died.
A bizarre series of events led up to Williams demise.
He had been involved in a construction accident where he was struck in the head.
Not long after, he suffered a cardiac arrest.
Now, it has been reported that dental issues were ultimately to blame, with the former NFL player having had an infection in his mouth that then spread to his brain.
According to the Hillsborough County, Florida Medical Examiner, Williams died of “Bacterial Sepsis with Cerebral Abscesses and Necrotizing Lobar Pneumonia due to multiple Dental Caries and retained tooth roots.”
He was only 36 years old at the time of his death.
Before his time in the NFL, Williams played for Syracuse University and still currently holds the record for second-most touchdowns in the school’s history.
That legacy of success would continue into the NFL during his first year.
Williams was first drafted into the NFL by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2010.
During that first year playing in the NFL, he set an impressive record for the franchise -- 11 touchdowns by a rookie wide receiver.
He played for the Buccaneers from 2010 to 2013 before being traded to the Buffalo Bills in 2014.
His time with the Bills in 2014 would mark the final year of his NFL career.
Following the NFL, Williams decided to reside in the Tampa Bay area and get involved in a new career, namely, construction.
He is survived by a son and daughter, his mother, and his brother.
There are not many who get to say that they played in the NFL during their time on earth.
Williams is gone too soon, and we pray for peace and comfort for his friends, family, and anyone who loved him.
