Daryl Williams

Cap Savings: $6,325,000

Dead Cap: $3,600,000

Another player that could be discussed but in the end probably won’t be released is Daryl Williams. He was signed as a free agent in 2020 and after an excellent season as the starting right tackle, the Bills signed him to a new three-year deal last offseason.

Williams struggled at right tackle to start the year last season but found success inside at right guard playing alongside Spencer Brown, who stepped in as the starter at right tackle.

The other reason the Bills likely won’t release Williams is the position doesn’t have much depth with Feliciano released as well as Ike Boettger being an unrestricted free agent and Ryan Bates a restricted free agent.

If the team was to release Daryl Williams would likely mean a complete overhaul at the position. While it is possible, it would likely require a significant amount of cap space and Buffalo may not find much benefit from this move.
