Does Williams Make the Bills D-Line the League’s Best?
In a bold move, the Buffalo Bills have unveiled their most impressive free agent acquisition in, well, ever. At six years and $100million ($50million of which is guaranteed), the Bills have their man.
All-pro defensive end Mario Williams was arguably the Big Fish in the offseason, with the exception of that Peyton guy. Houston’s former first overall pick in the 06 class is a legitimate rusher, which is important in the pass-happy AFC East, particularly if the aforementioned Peyton guy signs in Miami or New York (Jets are pretty much out of the running, I know).
The Bills have always had a tough job of attracting FA’s, forcing them to overpay. Are they overpaying for Mario? Of course. BUT does it instantly make their 4-3 (or 3-4 when they go that way) defense into one of the league’s best? Potentially, yes!
Williams will line up beside bluechip Marcel Dareus and Kyle Williams. The three will pose a menancing “3″ in the Bills 3-4 scheme, when they go with 3-man front.
..and that is the last word.
