The re-signing of Aaron Williams does not solve the safety issue. The Buffalo Bills re-signed Williams to a lucrative four-year contract on Wednesday. They overpaid, they had to overpay, they just overpaid for the wrong guy. Although my spidey-sense tells me Jairus Byrd never wanted to be in Buffalo and is putting on a good show for the front office, I don’t think the Bills had any other choice, but to make this deal. Good for you Mr. Williams.
Aaron Williams will forever be remembered, in my mind, as the pick right before Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick. In other words, the Bills chose a safety before their franchise quarterback, but I digress.
The Williams signing is good for the Bills, but doesn’t solve the issue of letting Byrd fly the coop. Aaron Williams is not in the upper tier of safeties. I expect to see new mock drafts depicting the number nine pick with the best safety inserted into that position. Will the Bills use that pick for a safety?
