Buffalo Bills, Kyle Williams agree to one-year, $10.5 million extension

The Buffalo Bills continue to throw money at their all-star defensive line, giving Kyle Williams a $10.5 million extension that will likely create 2015 salary cap relief, as well.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have agreed to a one-year, $10.5 million contract extension with veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams, which adds on to the two remaining years of his current deal and keeps him in Buffalo through the end of the 2017 season.

On the terms of his old deal, Williams carried cap hits of $6.4 million in 2015 and $7 million in 2016, while earning base salaries of $4.8 million and $7 million, respectively. One would assume, as the Bills pursue a big-money offer for tight end Charles Clay as well as several other veterans, that the Williams extension will lower that $6.4 million cap hit considerably this year.

Williams, who will turn 32 this summer, has been a Bills starter since the team made him a fifth-round draft pick in 2006. He's a four-time Pro Bowl player with 34.5 career sacks.
