Bills released/failed physical OG Chris Williams.
A 16-game starter for the Rams in 2013, Williams was limited to three games by a back injury last season. He's apparently still not healthy. 28 days shy of his 30th birthday, Williams will have to prove he's 100 percent before getting a chance elsewhere. Jul 28 - 5:25 PM

WKBW Buffalo’s Joe Buscaglia expects the Bills to cut OG Chris Williams.

Williams has been sidelined for OTAs as he recovers from back surgery. He’s no longer needed with additions of Richie Incognito and rookie John Miller. The Bills would leave only $875,000 in dead money by cutting Williams.

The Bills could release OG Chris Williams.

A no-show for OTAs, Williams' future is in question coming off an injury-shortened 2014. Buffalo added Richie Incognito and third-round OG John Miller, making Williams expendable. The Bills can save $2.85M by cutting Williams.

Bills coach Rex Ryan expressed frustration Tuesday that OG Chris Williams has not attended the offseason program.

Williams ended last season on I.R. with a back injury, and hasn't even met Rex yet. "I don’t know if he’s going to be planning on coming back or what; I haven’t seen him," Ryan said. "I haven’t talked to him, I haven’t seen him. I don’t even know what he looks like. I know these are voluntary type things, so that’s fine. I don’t know if he’s better than all of the rest of these guys, because all the rest of them are here."

Bills placed LG Chris Williams (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Signed to a four-year deal this offseason, Williams will end up making just three ineffective starts for the Bills. He's due a $1.875 million base salary in 2015 and could be a candidate for a post June 1 cut. Rookie Cyril Richardson will continue to replace Williams as Buffalo's starting left guard.

Bills LG Chris Williams (back) is doubtful for Week 4.

Rookie Cyril Richardson will make his debut against the Texans. Williams has been a liability in the run game the first three weeks, but should regain his starting job when healthy.

G Chris Williams left the Bills' Week 3 game against the Chargers with a back injury.

Williams dealt with the back injury all week in practice. He is out for the rest of the game. Kraig Urbik is playing in his place.

The Bills' official website called LG Chris Williams a "lock" to start.

Williams received a head-scratching four-year, $13.5 million contract from the Bills this offseason. The contract almost guarantees he is the Week 1 starter at left guard. Williams graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 74 guard out of 81 qualifiers last season.

Bills signed G Chris Williams to a four-year, $13.5 million contract with $5.5 million guaranteed.

The move is a head scratcher after Williams graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 74 guard among 81 qualifiers in 2013, and finished 76th in pass blocking. The Rams wanted him back, but certainly not at this price. Buffalo ostensibly plans to pencil in Williams at left guard, which was a gaping hole following Andy Levitre's 2013 departure. Williams turns 29 before next season.

Free agent G/T Chris Williams is visiting the Bills Wednesday.

Williams started every game at left guard for the Rams last season, turning in a shaky performance at best. He'd still be a nice get for a team as a versatile backup. The o-line needy Rams reportedly remain interested as well.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Texans are interested in free agent G/T Chris Williams.

Williams started all 16 games at left guard for the Rams last season, but was overmatched both as a pass protector and run blocker. The former No. 14 overall pick of the Bears shouldn't be looked at as a starter, though the Rams appear to still see him that way and remain interested in re-signing Williams.

Rams LG Chris Williams was forced from St. Louis' Week 12 game against the Bears with a concussion.

Williams went down in the first half, and was officially ruled out after the break. Shelley Smith is now in the game at left guard. Williams has graded out negatively in Pro Football Focus' guard ratings this season.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 03:16:00 PM

Rams re-signed G/T Chris Williams to a one-year contract.

The deal is worth "up to" $2.75 million, but Williams' base salary should be near the veteran's minimum. The former first-round bust appeared in six games between the Rams and Bears last season, playing 88 snaps. He won't be guaranteed a roster spot.

The Rams haven't ruled out re-signing free agent T/G Chris Williams.

Williams was signed prior to Week 8 last season, and appeared in six games. The former first-round pick visited the Panthers two weeks ago, but that's been his only visit. Williams would return as a backup-only with the Rams.

Free agent G/T Chris Williams will visit the Panthers.

We're getting to the nitty gritty of free agency. A replacement-level talent, Williams appeared in six games between the Bears and Rams last season. The former first-round bust would fight for one of Carolina's final roster spots if signed.
