And there he goes.
The Houston Texans just lost their 2006 No.1 overall pick and franchise all-time sack leader, two days into free agency. According to NFL Network’s Albert Breer, the Buffalo Bills have agreed to sign OLB/DE Mario Williams to a 6-year deal, with terms yet to be disclosed.
With the signing of Williams, the Bills managed to acquire arguably the best free agent prize of this offseason. His presence as a defensive end in the Bills’ 4-3 system should provide a huge boost to the pass-rushing department of their defense.
For the Houston Texans, the departure of their best defensive player in history is expected, considering their cap-stricken status. Now, with Foster signed long-term and Williams gone, the Texans brass will turn their attention to addressing other needs of the team, with the priority being re-signing O-line anchor C Chris Myers.
And to our beloved “Super Mario”, we at ToroTimes would like to thank you for all you’ve done to this Texans organization. We’ve grown accustomed to the moments we saw No.90 blew past his matchup in a flash and boom, the quarterback went down. It will be hard to see you in a different uniform. Your electrifying pass-rushing ability will be missed. But in the end, we wish you all the best in the next steps of your career with the Buffalo Bills.
Keep warm, Super Mario.
