What do you guys think about going after Mario Williams? He's a free agent and checking out teams. Man, to have a linebacker like that on the Raiders would bring our defense to another level. We better try and get this guy.

I think he would be awesome and I would love to have him on the team. I'm just not sure that we can afford him. After all the cuts and restructuring, the team is barely something like $2M under the cap right now. If they can make more room, I'd be all for an LB like Williams.

Also, I'm not sure, but isn't he a DE in a 4-3 and an OLB in a 3-4?

Bills signed DE/OLB Mario Williams to a six-year, $100 million contract.

The first ever $100 million contract for a defensive player includes $50 million guaranteed. The deal dwarves the then record six-year, $84 million pact signed by Bears RE Julius Peppers in March 2010. Peppers' deal included $42 million guaranteed. From a football perspective, the Bills provide Williams a chance to move back to his natural position of defensive end as they switch from a 3-4 to 4-3 defensive front. The No. 1 overall pick of the 2006 draft has notched 53.5 sacks in 82 career games.

Looks like Williams is a Bill now.
