  Bills | Plan to move Mario Williams around    Tue May 14, 08:30 PM

Buffalo Bills DE Mario Williams is excited to play under new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. "If I had to guess I'll probably be all over the place, but it comes with working out and being able to just move and know whenever you're in a different position that you have to switch it up a little bit in terms of your point of attack," Williams said. "I'm just ready to get out there and go."

Footballguys view: Moving Mario around is a smart move for the Bills. They want to get their money's worth after signing Williams to a $90MM contract last offseason.
