Report: Former Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams visiting Houston Texans

New, comments

Williams was released by the Bills in March.

After a six-year career with the Buffalo Bills, Aaron Williams was cut this offseason with post-June 1 designation, and is now set to make his second visit since his release.

On Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle was the first to report the news of Williams visiting the Texans.

The former second-round pick made a visit to Doug Marrone and the Jacksonville Jaguars in early May but clearly the two sides did not come to an agreement.

Williams hasn’t played since October 23 of 2016 when he was injured against the Dolphins and considered retirement in January but decided against it.

Ian Rapoport reported Williams is “healthy and ready to play.” Williams turned 27 in April and has appeared in 59 games in his NFL career. He has seven interceptions and 36 pass breakups as a pro.

Andre Hal and KJ Dillon currently sit atop of Houston’s safety depth chart.

If he’s still available, it’s not totally out of the question for the Bills to re-sign Williams at a reduced salary closer to the season.
