ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Williams will earn a $150,000 bonus if he collects his sixth sack of the season against Miami on Sunday. Williams has only surpassed 5.5 sacks in his career once; he tallied 10.5 in 2013 (otherwise known as The Year of Mike Pettine).
Williams stands at 48.5 career sacks right now, for an average of one sack in 26.6% of his games. He’s recorded at least one full sack in 34 career games.
Williams hasn’t notched a full or partial sack against Miami since 2014, when he took down Ryan Tannehill in a Bills win. The previous year, he recorded two sacks in a blowout win. Those are the only two games he has a full sack against the Dolphins.
No word yet on if he has any bonuses for scoring a rushing touchdown like he did last year.
