Bills Re-Sign Kyle Williams To One Year Deal

That's the thing. he is a rotational player now, he is not effective for a full game.

He is going to be a starter here, which I am not a fan of.

 

He is a leader, sure, but for a startign DT, I want more than that. 

 

Starters simply START the game. They rotate just like the ROTATIONAL guys.

 

Very simple concept...for some.

Williams was OK throughout most of the season and definitely not as good as in the past.  Having said that, the last few games of the year and playoff game he turned it on and played at a very high level.  Which tells me that if you play him less and more rotationally that he still can play at a high level.  I believe the Bills are going to draft a DT pretty high to be the eventual successor to KW and that will be the plan for 2018.

 

Good signing, not just for his play on the field but his invaluable presence in the locker room.

Seems to mirror your posting ability.

So I'm not allowed to have an opinion about a player who was the leader on our d-line that was abysmal last year?

Great news, honestly I can't imagine it's at a crazy cost and even with Star in the fold the team needs more at DT, right now Star is the run stuffing anchor, the team doesn't have a whole lot behind Star so adding Kyle adds at the very worst a high end rotational player and at best an above average DT to plug in for one more season while a rookie learns the ropes. Not sure Washington is going to be anything more than camp fodder (Washington should be brought into camp, it couldn't hurt to have him compete for the 4th DT spot.) But with Star signed and Kyle back the team's need at DT is diminished. I suspect that depending on what they do trade up wise the Bills will draft a DT between rounds 2-4 since depth and age is still a concern. I also think Kyle's presence in the locker room is fantastic and a plus.

I love it!

 

Kyle with Star will bring more stability to the D-Line.

 

Now draft a DT high, and we'll really be looking good.

You can have the opinion.  Just don’t expect it to be liked.

It's amazing how you interpreted what I wrote.

 

You are very special.

 

I love you.

 

So many edgelords...

 

You said anybody without bias would see that he's an ineffective player.

 

99% of the people posting in this thread are happy about the signing.

 

Therefore it's easy to deduce that you assume that anybody happy about this is biased and doesn't know what they're talking about.  This is pretty simple stuff, dude.

I'm thinking LB first

Oh, no...you are encouraged to present your cowpie opinions.

 

And others will respond, in turn, with their own perspectives. That's how this works.

Just because people are happy with the signing, doesn't mean they think he was effective.  Remember when Fred Jackson got cut?  It was because he was ineffective; everyone knew it; and most were pissed off.

 

I'm not unhappy that Kyle is back.  I simply think he was overpaid - as I do not expect him to be even close to an every down-type player.  And if he is, we're in a tad of trouble.  He was one of the reasons our D line sucked so bad last year.  That, my friend, is simple stuff.

Actually Gug, check out my linked post above; Kyle came in exactly where the market puts him as a 34-year old DT with multiple pro bowls.

So now we're going off the assumption that there's a contingency of happy people who think he's an ineffective player but are just happy that he was resigned because they like the guy?

 

So many mental gymnastics...

 

Whatever, have a good one.

With these brutes at DT, I would love a quick and physical guy like Rashaan Evans. But I don't think he will be on the radar if we have to trade #22 to get a QB. If we can obtain  a solid athletic ILB; great things could be happening on D' this year.

One less player to replace in the draft or free agency this year :) . Hope Star can extend #95 career even longer.

Do GMs actually take Pro Bowls into account?  Are ticket/merch sales that much of a factor?  Because being in the Pro Bowl doesn't necessarily mean a player is among the best at his position.

I bet you they are partially okay with paying him that for his presence in the locker room (his effect on rookies) and his embodiment of everything they are trying to establish in this team.     That is probably worth a couple million right there.    This staff is BIG on "team" and unselfishness.    That is Kyle Williams to a T.
