Report: DT Kyle Williams to return to the Bills in 2016

One Williams is reportedly gone, another is expected to return.

On Thursday, the Associated Press reported that the Buffalo Bills plan to part ways with defensive end Mario Williams in the offseason. The move will save the Bills close to $13 million in cap space.

Whereas one Williams is reportedly on his way out the door, the AP reported that another Williams on the team is expected to return in 2016. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams will return as long as he recovers completely from a knee injury that he suffered during the season, per the report. 

Williams was drafted by the Bills in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL draft. During his time with Buffalo, Williams has been named to four Pro Bowls and was a First-Team All-Pro in 2014. The veteran is well respected in the locker room and is seen as one of Buffalo's leaders. 

The defensive tackle is signed through the 2017 season. Williams carries a cap hit of $8 million in 2016 and an $8.3 million cap hit in 2017.
