Buffalo Bills’ General Manager Brandon Beane is at it again. On Friday afternoon, less than 24 hours after Matt Milano was extended, it was announced that the Bills re-signed offensive tackle, Daryl Williams, to a three-year, $28 million deal with $14 million guaranteed. Williams has been rewarded with this deal after having a “surprisingly” stellar 2020 season, one which not even he could believe.
“It’s crazy, with COVID and everything, I really didn’t expect to be here right now at this point in the season, and playing like I’m playing right now.”Daryl Williams via video conference, week of 12/18/20.
This deal was made possible by the release of John Brown & Quinton Jefferson and the restructures of Vernon Butler & Mitch Morse, which ultimately saved the Bills almost $20 million in cap space.
With Williams back on the roster, which is made official next week, it is a sure indicator that guard Jon Feliciano will most likely be on his way out. And with the offseason starting next week, his replacement should be coming through the draft of free agency.
Williams brings back his veteran presence and outstanding pass blocking ability to a much improved offensive line that hopes to make an even bigger jump from last season and continue to make a push at the Super Bowl.
