Free agent guard Chris Williams has agreed to sign a four-year contract with the Bills, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link). According to Schefter, the deal will be worth a total of $13.5MM, with $5.5MM guaranteed.
The 28-year-old has some previous experience at tackle but is expected to play left guard for Buffalo. Williams stands at 6’6″ and 326 pounds and should give the Bills an imposing presence on the offensive line. His new deal will give him a significant pay bump over his last contract as he made $2.75MM with the Rams last season.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher was vocal about his desire to see Williams back in St. Louis in 2014, but that just wasn’t in the cards for the 14th overall pick in the 2008 draft.
