The Buffalo Bills have signed defensive back Aaron Williams to a contract extension.
The Buffalo Bills today announced that DB Aaron Williams has signed a contract extension with the team. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Aaron Williams is a versatile player who has grown into a key playmaker for our defense in recent years,” said Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley. “He had an extremely productive season for our defense in 2013. Aaron is the type of young, core player we targeted early in the process to retain for years to come and this will be our philosophy moving forward. By building on his improved play in 2013, we expect Aaron to continue to grow into a key contributor for the Bills organization.”
Williams played in and started 14 games in 2013 and tallied a career-high 82 tackles (60 solo) and tied for the team-lead with four interceptions.
The 6-0, 199-pound Texas product joined the Bills as a second-round (34th overall) draft selection in 2011 and has posted career totals of 144 tackles (111 solo), five interceptions, 23 passes defensed and two forced fumbles.
