Mario Wililams spending another night in Buffalo

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 14, 2012 – 5:25 pm

Linebacker Mario Williams will spend another night in Buffalo as he continues to visit with the Bills, who are pushing hard to sign the two-time Texans Pro Bowler on his first visit of free agency.

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.

    Williams needs to stop worrying about how much he gets paid and start working about winning a super bowl. Let me ask you this: Is being the highest-paid, non-superbowl-winning defensive end more important that having a ring on your finger that states greatness? Let’s be honest, Buffalo isn’t going to win a superbowl anytime soon.

    Mario is a great player and will succeed wherever he decides to go. I would love to see him again in the deep steel blue, but we’ll be fine without him.

    I knew it, taking the risk for mario williams was not a good idea. he now belongs in buffalo but will soon realize he made a huge mistake. As for as Winston that was not a wise move to let him go. Texans management along with kubiak is not going a good job their were hired to do which mean will start from scratch at the offense side. Myers, wiston, will soon find new places to call home. bad bad move on TEXANS STAFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. Let this be a lessons texans.
