NFL: Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Many have been calling for it, and despite a really bad drop against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Maxx Williams has been one of the most consistent weapons on offense for the Arizona Cardinals.

Now, the team has rewarded him with a two-year contract extension.

From the team:

"The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has signed tight end Maxx Williams to a two-year extension that will keep Williams under contract through the conclusion of 2021 season. In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed."

"Williams (6-4, 252) has played in all 10 games this season (five starts) with the Cardinals and has 11 receptions for 139 yards and one touchdown. He signed with Arizona as a free agent in the offseason after spending his first four seasons in the league with Baltimore where he appeared in 42 games (21 starts) had 63 receptions for 497 yards and three touchdowns. The 25-year old Williams entered the league with Baltimore as a second-round selection (55th overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Minnesota."

Williams has been a dynamic two-way offensive player, and he is having a great year blocking in the Cardinals diverse run game.

Welcome to the desert for a little longer, Maxx.
