Report: Bills, NT Kyle Williams Talking Contract Extension

New, comments

While we await word on the latest in the Lee Evans trade rumors, a separate report - this one apparently from Jason La Canfora of NFL Network - could indicate where the Buffalo Bills are set to begin spending some of their money.

As relayed by Rotoworld (and now viewable at NFL.com), La Canfora reports that the Bills are now talking contract with their best player, star nose tackle Kyle Williams.

Williams received a contract extension from the Bills prior to the 2008 season, after just two years in the league. At that time, the deal extended Williams through 2012 and was effectively a three-year, $14.4 million add-on to his existing deal that guaranteed him more money in '08 and '09. Now, the Bills appear to be ready to lock him up for the long haul - and probably with a significant pay raise involved.

Obviously, this is good news, as Williams is a great player and a fan favorite. More intriguing, however, is the fact that with this commitment (should it happen), we can essentially kiss plans to field a traditional 3-4 defense goodbye.
