Message clear for Seahawks' Mike Williams

RENTON, Wash. -- Former first-round draft choice Mike Williams has enjoyed a career revival with the Seattle Seahawks this offseason.

The Seahawks want to make sure he doesn't let off the accelerator.

Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates made that clear by his response to a question about how well Williams was doing in camp.

"Mike has had a good camp," Bates said after practice Thursday. "He can't be missing practices. You gotta be out here on the practice field to get better. He just has to find a way. He missed two days. He came back today and had a strong day. For all the guys, we still have months. We're not naming starters or who has made the team. We have to keep grinding. He has done a great job, but he has to understand this is a process and he has got to compete and we'll see on Saturday (in the exhibition game against Tennessee)."

I'd say Williams is officially on notice. The Seahawks like what they've seen from him, but they need to see it every day.
