Mario Williams Released

Williams, 31, was considerably less effective in first-year Bills coach Rex Ryan's scheme last season than he was in his first three seasons in Buffalo. Starting all 15 games in which he appeared, Williams recorded 19 tackles and five sacks, which were both the second-lowest totals of his 10-year NFL career.

The team's highest-paid player in every season since 2012, Williams spoke publicly last season about his concerns with Ryan's scheme, which sometimes sent pass rushers into coverage and included complex adjustments at the line of scrimmage.

In a recent conversation with Anderson, Williams summarized his and other players' frustrations about their responsibilities in Ryan's system.

"I'm not saying that the scheme is wrong, I'm just saying that our strengths could be utilized better," he said. "In our meetings defensively, especially in our defensive line room, we said, 'Can we go straight? Can we just go? Can we turn it loose? [We] said to our defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman, 'Do we have to drop [into coverage] on this?'
I didn't realize he was 31.

With his age and the season he had last year, I wouldn't expect he'd break the bank. But I've been wrong before. :toothgrin:

My friend lives in Buffalo and he said Williams nickname is Pancake, because that's what OT's do to him.

Shows how stupid Rex Ryan was.....take a 4-3 D-End and play him as a 5-Tech.

Mario had 14.5 sacks in a 4-3 in 2014....5.0 as a 5-tech for Ryan.

We won't spend the 7-8-9 million to sign him....but the Beagles will and he'll be playing for Schwartz again.

:iamwithstupid:

Too many possibilities in multiple rounds.....maybe as deep as the 3rd.

Have heard the name Adrian Clayborn of the Falcons...Da'Quan Bowers of Tampa...Corey Wootton of the Vikes.

We need to draft defensive ends but we also need stop gaps at the position. Almost always takes at least a year and often times two years to develop. Claiborne is an upgrade over Mincey but had three sacks last year. We do need someone who can help Lawrence out.

31 years of age is No Bueno.
Team Brass is on record with this. Only certain situations will tempt them to alter it and I can't see this being one.
Ware on the other hand...
