The Bills have agreed to a new three-year deal with offensive tackle Daryl Williams, per a club announcement. The pact will be worth $28.2MM in total with nearly $14MM guaranteed (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport).
The Bills inked Williams to a one-year prove-it deal last year. He proved it. The 28-year-old started all 16 games — plus two playoff games — helping to protect Josh Allen and powering Buffalo’s offense.
Williams, 28, spent the early part of his career with the Panthers. In 2019, his final Carolina season, he moved all across front five and spent more time on the interior than on the outside. Pro Football Focus graded him 57th out of 80 qualifiers as a guard, but his best work has always been at tackle.
In 2020, the former fourth-round pick graded out as PFF’s No. 21 ranked tackle in the NFL, putting him ahead of names like Orlando Brown Jr., Jake Matthews, Laremy Tunsil, and Alejandro Villanueva. Now, the six-year vet has a lucrative new deal that will tie him to the Bills through 2023.
