The Buccaneers entered training camp wanting to see a competition emerge for the starting WR spot opposite free-agent addition Vincent Jackson. Mike Williams was always considered at least a narrow front-runner for the job, and he has only tightened his hold on that role over the past few weeks, we hear.

We’re told Williams has been the Bucs’ most consistent receiver in camp. He has matured and seems to be soaking up knowledge from Jackson, who continues to set a fine example for the young group of Bucs receivers.

Williams’ fellow third-year receiver, Arrelious Benn, was supposed to be involved in the competition for snaps in the rotation, but he has been out since late July with a knee injury and is apparently still a few weeks away from returning to practice.

Williams and Jackson are not the only receivers having a strong camp, though. We hear fourth-year veteran Tiquan Underwood, who had a 44-yard grab in the preseason opener, has consistently looked good.
