NFL free agency 2014: Chris Williams, Nolan Carroll visiting Buffalo Bills

Carroll would add depth and size at cornerback, while Williams would be an experienced contender for the starting left guard job along with Doug Legursky.

The Buffalo Bills have confirmed that two free agents are visiting One Bills Drive on Wednesday morning: cornerback Nolan Carroll and guard Chris Williams.

Carroll's name has been in the news cycle since yesterday, when Jason La Canfora reported that Buffalo would be Carroll's first free agent stop. The 6'1", 205-pound cornerback would conceivably add depth and size to a Bills cornerback position that needs both, but he likely would only end up competing for nickel duties in Buffalo.

Williams (6'6", 326), a 2008 first-round pick of the Chicago Bears, spent the last two seasons with the St. Louis Rams, including all 16 games in 2013 as the team's starting left guard. The Rams have expressed interest in bringing Williams back, and the Houston Texans have reportedly shown interest in Williams as a free agent, as well. The 28-year-old could conceivably compete with Doug Legursky for the Bills' starting left guard job.

Here's to hoping that the two free agent visitors aren't put off by a little (read: a foot-plus of) snow.
