Defensive end Mario Williams, who had one of the worst seasons of his ten-year NFL career in 2015, has reportedly been released from the Buffalo Bills. Williams, who played in 15 games this season and managed to record just 15 total tackles, was informed of his released on Tuesday afternoon. ESPN’s Josina Anderson first had the report.
The Bills led the NFL in sacks in 2014 with 54 sacks, but finished the 2015 season finishing 31st with only 21 sacks during new head coach Rex Ryan’s first season. Williams, who averaged 34 sacks per season in 2012-14, managed to get just five total sacks in 2015. Williams had two years left on a six-year, $96 million contract that he signed in 2012.
