The Bills have been active players in the early going of NFL free agency. The early signings of FB Jerome Felton and QB Tyrod Taylor have been accompanied by a veteran release (Scott Chandler) and now a contract extension for a Bills Pro Bowl defensive tackle.
Buffalo formally announced that they have signed veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams to a contract extension. The 31-year old is coming off his fourth Pro Bowl season in which he racked up 41 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 15 quarterback hits and eight tackles for loss en route to earning Pro Bowl honors. Williams has tallied 34.5 sacks in his career—the most by any defensive tackle in Bills team history.
Williams' extension likely helped to provide the club with more cap space in 2015 to leave the team in a more flexible fiscal situation.
The Bills have had a handful of free agent visitors this week including free agent WR Percy Harvin and Miami transition player TE Charles Clay.
Defensive tackle Kyle Williams was the first selection in the fifth round (134th overall) by the Bills in the 2006 NFL draft.
