Buffalo Inks DT Kyle Williams to a Six-Year Extension

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams has agreed to terms on a contract extension, Albert Elias, Williams’ agent, announced on Twitter.

According to Jason La Canfora, Williams’ extension is worth $39 million over six seasons with $17 million in guarantees. Williams had two years and around $5.5 million remaining on a three-year, $11.05 million extension from 2008. The new deal adds four years and $30 million in new money, with $39 million available over the next six seasons total.

Williams was scheduled to earn $1.75 million in base salary this season, and was due a $1 million roster bonus.

A fifth-round pick (134th overall) out of LSU by the Bills in 2006, the 6-foot-1, 306-pound Williams has 292 tackles and 13.5 quarterback sacks as a starter in 72 of his 78 career games. Williams earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl following the 2010 season.
