Good deal for Buffalo, this guy is easily the best player on their team at this point.

great move for both sides

Seems low. They reportedly offered Posluszny the same deal that he signed with the Jags. I'd think Williams is much more valuable than Poz.

Very smart move. It could've gotten alot more expensive if they waited till after he dominated again this season.

Great move by the Bills to lock him up early. If he continue to be as good as he is, its a steal.

Great deal and I'm glad to have it done. He was quietly one of the best DT in the league two years ago and then just blew everybody away last season in a scheme he was not widely expected to succeed in. Just so quick and technically proficient. I'm ecstatic at the shape of our line, right now and for the next 4+ years.

A rare smart move by the Bills. This dude is one of the most underrated defensive players in the league.

Please don't tell me he put that on twitter.

One of the better interior linemen in the league the past few years really. Echo what everyone else said about it being a good move.

Please don't tell me he put that on twitter.

Hehe no, he didn't.

Great deal for the Bills, their DL has so much potential if they can just find some pass rushers at OLB other than Shawne Merriman.

See what catches like this will get ya!!!!

Seems awfully low after all the money that was thrown around this offseason. Williams got 6 yrs/$39 million/$17 million gtd, while a guy like Ray Edwards got 5 yrs/$30 million/$11 million gtd. You add another year to Edwards's contract, and add another average distribution to the salary total and bonus, and it's 6 yrs/$35 million/$13.2 million gtd.

Kyle Williams's contract is a little more than half of what Charles Johnson got from the Panthers, which was 6 yrs/$72 million/$32 million gtd. What an ourtageous steal for the Bills. They could've probably added another $10 million to it, and no one would've batted an eye.

It's because people want to play in Buffalo.
