Buffalo Bills Extend Kyle Williams


The Buffalo Bills have been quite active in free agency and even before free agency with a pair of trades.  The haven’t stopped and don’t look to be slowing down either.

The Buffalo Bills, in their latest move, have extended DT Kyle Williams.

"Bills and DT Kyle Williams reached agreement on a one-year, $10.5 million extension tying him to Buffalo for three more years, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 11, 2015– BuffaloBills.com"

Kyle Williams was drafted by the Buffalo Bills back in 2006.  He has been with the team ever since and has been a mainstay on their defensive line.  He has played in 130 games and started 125 of them for the Bills.  He has been able to rack up 34.5 sacks and 297 tackles during his career in Buffalo.  He has appeared in 4 pro bowls; 2010, 2012-2014.  His best year was probably 2013 where he recorded 10.5 sacks and had 42 tackles.

Kyle Williams still had 2 years left on his contract and this 1 year extension with an additional 10.5 has not provided any more details than that.  This move is more than just adding another year to Williams’ stay in Buffalo.  As it looks, Williams will be retiring as a Buffalo Bill at this pace, but this contract extension with the additional money is more or less a move, to restructure his contract to free up some more room this year, so the Buffalo Bills and Rex Ryan can make more moves in the next couple of days, if not today.

I would not be surprised to see this move being made right before an offer sheet is extended to Charles Clay, to make sure that there is enough room in the cap for the Buffalo Bills to still address an offensive guard position or even to offer Percy Harvin a contract as well.

With this 1 year extension, Kyle Williams and the Buffalo Bills will be locked together until 2017.
