Buffalo Bills DE Mario Williams is open to taking a paycut

Mario Williams told Josina Anderson of ESPN that he's open to taking a pay cut.

No one expected Mario Williams to be suiting up for the Buffalo Bills in 2016, but the defensive end isn't closing the door on returning to Buffalo. In fact, Williams told Josina Anderson that he's willing to take a pay cut to return to the Bills. Williams said the following on his willingness to take a pay cut:

"Yeah, I mean, it all depends on what is happening," Williams said. My thing is this... obviously I've had big contracts, but once you get on a team and you get around the guys, it becomes family. The guy on defense, we laugh and talk about anything. We do a bunch of stuff together on and off the field, obviously. It's bigger than just numbers. But at the same time as far as what you said about it being feasible, a crunch is a crunch. Obviously there's two great players on the other side of the ball that need to be back (Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito). Like you said, I'm not an accountant either. I don't even know how you can go about it where it makes at least some type of sense. That's not what I do, so that's why I don't even worry about it."

Williams returning to Buffalo would certainly create one less hole for the team to fill, but the team may be ready to move on from the defensive end. Regardless, it's interesting to hear that Williams is at least open to the idea of a pay cut.
