Bills Reportedly Release Mario Williams
Big news out of Buffalo today...
Williams, the former No. 1 overall pick in the draft, spent four years in Buffalo, amassing 43 sacks and forcing five fumbles. He had 10.5, 13.0, and 14.5 sacks in his first three seasons before posting five this season, tied for his career low.
Williams didn't always agree with Rex Ryan's defensive philosophies and this move was expected, as it saves the Bills $12.9 million in cap space. Williams said last week that he'd be open to restructuring his deal, so it is still possible that he reunites with Ryan in Buffalo, although it'd be doubtful.
If Williams isn't back in Buffalo, where could he be a fit? He could certainly be a fit with the New York Giants, who need pass rush help and have nearly $60 million in cap space. He could also be a fit with the Patriots, who have a way of needling the rest of the AFC East. The Atlanta Falcons also have cap space and posted a league-low in sacks last season, but that is just my speculation.
