BuffaloBills.com says Williams will remain in Buffalo overnight and is scheduled to resume his visit with the team in the morning. Williams arrived in Buffalo on Tuesday and dined with Bills brass. He took a physical with Bills team doctors and got a tour of the team facility on Wednesday morning. His fiancé flew into town around lunch time Wednesday, as BuffaloBills.com’s Chris Brown details:
Williams and his fiancé were then escorted around Western New York where they took in the local communities in and around Orchard Park where Ralph Wilson Stadium is located. After returning to One Bills Drive late in the afternoon the couple chose to stretch their visit in Buffalo into Thursday.
No word on how close Williams is to a final decision on signing with the Bills. Per team policy the Bills do not comment on the state of negotiations until they are completed.
Based on what has happened so far and the fact that Williams is staying in Buffalo for a third day, it would almost be surprising if he doesn’t sign with the Bills sometime on Thursday.
The Texans have said they would like to re-sign Williams if possible under the salary cap, but the Bills are reportedly committed to making him the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL. Jacksonville, Seattle, Tennessee and Chicago also have been rumored as suitors for Williams.
