ORCHARD PARK, NY (WKBW) - "Jim Kelly was definitely a big plus for me. Did some heavy recruiting," Mario Williams told the media just minutes after he signed his contract to become the newest addition to the Buffalo Bills.

Kelly and Williams, both avid hunters, hit it off immediately during Williams' 48 visit to the Queen City.

"Make him feel, like we all know here, how the city is and how friendly it is and how everybody here breathes football," said Kelly.

Besides the team, coaches, players and facilities, Williams said the city played a factor in his decision to sign.

"I heard so much stuff about this city and it's not fair. There's great people here - there's caring, compassionate people that definitely have your back... I can see that already," he said.
