Bills Going After Mario Williams Hard
According to BuffaloNews.com, the Buffalo Bills plan to make an offer to former Houston Texans outside linebacker Mario Williams.
It seems that the Bills are ready to make Williams the highest paid defender in the league, and rightfully so for the former #1 overall pick.
He will be in town tonight and Buffalo expects to make an offer very soon.
Some defenders that remain amongst the highest paid are Minnesota end Jared Allen, Indianapolis end Dwight Freeney, and Philadelphia cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
The Bills are absolutely desperate for pass rushing help, and their frustrating with schemes is evident as they cannot decide between the 3-4 defense and the 4-3.
Regardless, Williams has success in both. Williams makes an elite right defensive end in a 4-3 scheme, and can play outside linebacker if they run any 3-4 personnel.
The move to sign Williams would be one of the biggest for 2012 as he is a top player in the NFL and the Houston Texans are doing what they can to prevent him from leaving.
Williams missed 11 games in 2011, but still managed five sacks in five games under Wade Phillips’ new 3-4 defense in Houston.
If the Bills make an offer and plan to make him the highest paid defender, they will be looking at around 13-16 million dollars per season.
