Buffalo Bills, Kyle Williams Nearing Contract Extension, Per Report

As relayed by Joe Buscaglia, WGR 550 is reporting - citing sources - that the Buffalo Bills and defensive tackle Kyle Williams are close to finalizing a long-term contract extension. The station also reports that once that deal is completed, the team will turn its attention to getting a deal in place for fourth-year receiver Stevie Johnson. Read all about it here.

We've known for almost two weeks that the Bills were talking with Williams about exactly this type of deal, and Williams confirmed that talks were ongoing himself. Signing the 28-year-old, Pro Bowl defensive lineman would be a great step for the Bills from a personnel standpoint, if not from a PR standpoint. We've talked all winter, spring and summer about how awesome Williams is, so we'll spare you the re-hash. You already know.

Johnson confirmed last week that he had not heard of contract talks between the Bills and his agent, but those appear imminent once Williams is done. Johnson got a promotion to the No. 1 receiver spot when Lee Evans was traded, and is coming off an 82-catch, 1,073-yard, 10-touchdown season.
