They may soon need to build an expressway from Charlotte to Buffalo as the Bills once again plucked a free agent out of Carolina with the team agreeing to terms with OL Daryl Williams on a one-year contract Thursday.

Williams, 27, made a successful return to the field in 2019 after missing almost the entire 2018 campaign with a knee injury that required season-ending surgery.

Buffalo's front office and offensive staff covet players who offer position flexibility and it might be Williams' greatest asset as a player.

The Oklahoma product started 12 games for the Panthers last season lining up at left guard for five games, left tackle for four games and right guard for three games.

A former fourth-round pick of Carolina in 2015, Williams saw spot duty as a rookie that year. He was plugged in at right tackle the following season after an injury moved right tackle Mike Remmers to the left side.

Williams would start 10 games at right tackle that year, missing three due to an ankle injury. He held onto that role in 2017 and started all 16 games for the Panthers that season before the knee injury compromised his 2018 campaign.

Known as a road-grader type, Williams offers flexibility along the offensive line at guard and tackle based on his playing history.

And he obviously has familiarity with Bills head coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane from their days with the Panthers organization.
