Bills DE Mario Williams: 'I'm prepared for anything'


The Buffalo Bills reportedly plan to release Mario Williams due to a "clear, fundamental disconnect" between the pass rusher and Rex Ryan's coaching staff.

Every game, all season

Williams recently told to ESPN's Josina Anderson that he's ready for a fresh start after Ryan's defense "didn't work out" last season.

"I'm prepared for anything," Williams said, via, "because I know I'm going to prove a point and that is not even a question in my mind.

"At the end of the day, if I'm not there, I'll show you that I'm better than what I've been before. Like, that's just a chip on my shoulder regardless of whether I am there or not, because given the opportunity I'll get back to what I was."

There's little question that Williams will be released, a transaction which will save the Bills $12.9 million in salary-cap space.

One teammate accused the $96 million defensive end of being "totally checked out" late in the season.

Williams, 31, is just one year removed from a career-high 14.5 sacks in an All-Pro campaign under former Bills coordinator Jim Schwartz. Now running the Eagles' defense under new coach Doug Pederson, perhaps Schwartz will recruit Williams to Philadelphia once the Bills cut ties.
