Buffalo Bills Release OG Chris Williams

Chris Williams was undoubtedly Buffalo's worst free agent signing in 2014. On Tuesday, the Bills released Williams.

The Buffalo Bills have released guard Chris Williams following a failed physical. The veteran guard signed a four-year, $13,150,000 deal with Buffalo during the 2014 offseason. The signing and contract was a bit puzzling as Williams was ranked as the 73rd best guard in the league in 2013 by Pro Football Focus.

Williams was named the starting left guard by Doug Marrone but only lasted three games before being placed on the injured reserve with a back injury. During his three starts, PFF gave Williams a rating of -6.9. Among guards that played at least 25 percent of their teams snaps, Williams was ranked 65th out of 70 eligible guards.

Entering 2015, Williams was considered a long-shot to make the roster due to his salary. Buffalo added John Miller and Richie Incognito to the position this offseason and the duo is expected to start. The depth behind the starting duo is questionable, but that was not a good enough reason to give Williams in the fold.

Buffalo's roster now sits at 88 following Williams' release.
