Mario Williams is not walking through that door.
Well, he is, but he's walking the wrong direction for fans of the Buffalo Bills.
Yep. Looks like he's going to be visiting other teams, according to ESPN's John Clayton.
It is unknown what other teams Mario Williams plans to visit, but he was rumored to be coveted by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons and the team that drafted him, the Texans.
But it really doesn't matter what the other teams are. If he gets on that plane, he's never coming back to Buffalo.
There are plenty of teams with plenty of cap space to contend with the Bills for Williams' services, and with help from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, we find that some of them are even on Clayton's list of teams rumored to have interest.
Add to those numbers the extra $1.6 million allotted to each team for the penalty against Washington and Dallas, and it looks like the Jaguars and Seahawks are two teams to watch out for. While the Seahawks have around $31.4 million in cap space, the Jaguars boast a healthy $42.2 million.
Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams told WGAR 550 Buffalo via the team's official website that it appeared promising as recently as last night that Mario Williams would sign with the Bills.
I have a good feeling about it. We were together til 11 at night at the facility hanging out having a good time. The powers that be were working late last night so I feel good about it. I'll see him again this morning at the facility and the fact that he's still here is good.
But the fact that he's leaving town soon is not good.
Look no further back than just last month for an example of this; the Bills had free agent cornerback Stanford Routt in for a visit, but he left town to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs. In Missouri.
Imagine if he heads on a plane to Jacksonville, where they have the money, the weather, no state taxes and a very winnable division.
The minute he steps on a plane out of town, his chances of coming back drop off like the Bills' win production since 1999.
