Uncertainty with Bills could affect future of DT Kyle Williams

As the Bills wrap up a 17th straight year without a postseason berth, it could mark the end of the career of Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams.

During the first quarter of the Bills game in New Jersey against the Jets, CBS announcer Andrew Catalon shared a conversation he had with the four-time pro-bowler on New Year's Eve.

"When we met with Kyle Williams last night, he's 33 years old, a ton of back injuries throughout the season -- they've really been bothering him," Catalon said.

He continued: "And, we asked him, next year are you going to keep playing? And, he said 'I don't know. I want to see what happens here because if we blow up the team, meaning a complete rebuild, I don't know if I want to stick around for that.'"

Catalon added the defensive tackle had nice things to say about interim head coach Anthony Lynn who has been tabbed as the front-runner to secure the head coaching job in 2017, according to multiple national reports.

Williams will be entering the final year of his contract in the 2017-2018 season and will be an unrestricted free agent in 2018.

In his 11 years, all with the Bills, Williams has amassed 534 tackles and 40.5 sacks.

The Louisiana native was selected in the fifth round of the 2006 draft.
