Schefter: Mario Williams to visit Buffalo Bills

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 13, 2012 – 2:30 pm

Just minutes into free agency, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Texans outside linebacker Mario Williams plans to visit the Buffalo Bills tonight.

About an hour earlier, Houston radio host Lance Zierlein tweeted that the Bills were making a “strong push” for Williams, adding, “With switch to 4-3, Mario Williams is target to put next to [Marcell] Dareus in Buffalo.”

Williams became an unrestricted free agent at 3 p.m. CT, the start of the new league year. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft has indicated he would like to remain with the Texans, and Texans owner Bob McNair said earlier today that the Texans want Williams back and will do everything they can to retain him. But Williams, who can play in a 4-3 or 3-4, will likely be the most coveted defensive player on the market.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk says, per a league source, that three other teams are waiting to bring in Williams for a visit. The teams are not named in the report. According to Florio, Williams will not set any visits beyond Buffalo until Wednesday.

UPDATE 2: The Bills posted a picture of Williams arriving in Buffalo with GM Buddy Nix at 5:13 p.m. CT. BuffaloBills.com’s Chris Brown writes that Nix and defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt flew to North Carolina to escort Williams back to Buffalo on a private jet, and that Williams was having dinner Tuesday with Nix, Wannstedt, Bills CEO Russ Brandon, head coach Chan Gailey and defensive tackle Kyle Williams as the Bills “put on the full court press to land the prized free agent.”

UPDATE 3: Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News reports that the Bills are “committed to making [Williams] the top-paid defensive player of the league” and “will try to complete the deal as soon as possible.” Gaughan also says the Bills’ chances of signing Williams would go “dramatically down” if Williams leaves town without signing.
