Mario Williams is making a visit within the AFC East after being released by the Buffalo Bills.

It didn't take long for Mario Williams to drum up interest.

Mario Williams  is already getting plenty of interest as a free agent. The defensive end was released by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday and already has a visit lined up within the AFC East. Ian Rapoport reported on Saturday that Williams will be visiting the Miami Dolphins.


Although Williams didn't record any sacks against the Dolphins in 2015, he's tormented Miami throughout his career. In 13 games against Miami, Williams has recorded 13 sacks. During his time in Buffalo, Williams recorded 8.5 sacks against Miami. Williams' teams have gone 11-2 versus the Dolphins in his career.

The idea of adding Williams makes sense from a personnel standpoint, but Miami may struggle to add Williams due to their lack of cap space. According to Spotrac, the Dolphins are currently 31st in cap space (-3.88M). Miami could free up cap space by releasing players, as well as restructuring the contracts of players such as Koa Misi and Ndamukong Suh.

Miami may not be able to afford the defensive end, but it makes plenty of sense for Williams to make any and all visits before choosing his next team. After one of his worst statistical seasons, Williams should attempt to drum up as much interest as possible.

Update: The NY Giants are also intrerested in Mario Williams.
