After coming back from a meniscus surgery, can Kyle Williams come back as strong as he has in the past or has he reached his peak?
Who would of thought that a 2006 5th Round Draft Pick traded from the Houston Texans to the Buffalo Bills would amass the production level that Kyle Williams has achieved in Buffalo?
The pick was a trade for a local favorite, Eric Moulds.
One producer for another.
When you watch Kyle Williams play, you see a workhorse and you see a man that seems possessed.
Kyle Williams statistics have shown his grit and his worth over the years through all the different coaches and coordinators.
He’s had to learn new system after new system. He’s been through all of the despair that Bills fans have been through and he’s still stuck around.
Day in and day out, Kyle Williams wants to knock the other team on their butt and see Buffalo win. It feels as if he’s a local now. He’s weaved himself into the community and become a focal point of the defensive front for ten, going on eleven seasons.
Year after year Kyle Williams has been a rock for the defense. He has been a true leader and a captain for the team that right now, needs to right the ship.
Last year, Williams had to end his season early after injuring his knee in the Week 6 matchup versus Cincinnati. After this major setback, many believe that Williams is at the tail end of his career and that he can’t bounce back.
I disagree with that.
I have learned in the past that you never count someone out just because the writers and reporters want to think that they are done. Kyle Williams is no exception.
In 2013, he had 10.5 sacks and 42 tackles recorded at the age of 30. Many defensive lineman in the NFL tend to drop off in production around their seventh year according to data compiled by Bleacher Report, but even after his seventh year, Kyle Williams has continued to produce.
What this new season holds for Kyle Williams is anyones guess. Players bodies don’t tend to hold up long after multiple injuries. Lots of hard contact on the line of scrimmage wears a player down quickly, but Rex Ryan is a coach that likes to rotate players often and this could bode well for Williams.
Although he is going into his eleventh season for the Buffalo Bills, it doesn’t seem like Kyle Williams is willing to give it up yet. He may be starting training camp on the PUP list, but there is optimism he can help the now younger defensive front as well as overall defense. We saw a lot of names that we weren’t used to seeing last year and this year may be no different. One name Bills fans hope to hear of lot this season is Kyle Williams.
