The Argos are hoping there’s still some gas left in the tank that is Michael Williams, a big-time college receiver at USC who never found his stride in the NFL.

Williams was invited to the team’s mini-camp in Florida last month and he clearly made an impression that prompted the defending Grey Cup champions to sign this big-target wideout.

It remains to be seen whether Williams is just a body at the team’s upcoming training camp or a legitimate threat to supplant one of the Argos’ incumbents.

Whatever unfolds, the Argos won’t be lacking for bodies by providing a competitive environment.

When Emmanuel Arceneaux was cut loose by the NFL’ last week, the Argos emerged as one of his three-down football’s suitors.

Arceneaux decided to rejoin the Lions.

Williams never did live up to the college hype generated at USC, where he amassed in excess of 2,500 receiving yards and produced 30 touchdowns.

In five seasons down south, Williams, who was taken 10th overall by Detroit, was part of four franchises, including a stint in Seattle where he was reunited with Trojans head coach Pete Carroll.

Williams is only 29, but he hasn’t played much football in recent years.

He’s listed at 6-foot-5 and if Williams can reclaim any of his collegiate glory, then the Argos have found themselves a keeper.

His recent history, though, suggests otherwise.
