Which NFL player racked up $200,000 in fines in 2013?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams signed a lucrative $40.25 million six-year contract extension in July 2013 after a couple of impressive years with the franchise.

But in October he suffered a hamstring injury that ruled him out for the remainder of the season. 

And since then he has spent most of his time racking up fines to the region of $200,000 - maybe he feels bad for getting injured so soon after signing that big contract?

Or maybe he is too busy partying in all his free time or focussing on a burgeoning rapping career?

Whatever the reasons, Williams was late, or failed to report altogether, to several mandatory team meetings during 2013.

He also missed a number of scheduled rehab sessions as the team looked to nurse him back from the injury sustained in Week Nine. 

And the Bucs fined him accordingly. 

Of course posting a stream of pictures on social media showing you partying into the early hours isn't going to pass as an excuse - even if you are listed on the IR list. 

Williams was restricted to just 22 catches for 216 yards in six games last season, and his recent antics have led to some suggesting he could be cut over the off-season.

The wide receiver has a history of inappropriate activity after quitting the Syracuse football team in the face of a potential suspension related to a car accident.
