When the Bills gave Mario Williams the most lucrative contract for a defensive player in NFL history, just about everyone in Buffalo expected Williams to be more of an impact player than he has been through his first seven games.
But Williams says he’s not interested in what everyone in Buffalo expected.
“I don’t care about your expectations. I don’t care about anybody’s expectations,” Williams said when asked if he thinks he is living up to expectations, via the Buffalo News.
Having said that, Williams has high expectations for himself. And he indicated that the wrist injury that’s been hampering him for most of the season is one of the reasons he hasn’t met his own expectations.
“I need to play better and I need to get healthy, it’s No. 1 on my point,” Williams said. “I can say this and you can take it however you want to take it, but it really don’t matter to me. I really don’t care what you think. At the end of the day I know I need to get physically back into things so I’m not hesitating.”
With the Bills now heading into their bye week, there’s no better time for Williams to get physically back to complete health, so that he can start meeting those expectations he doesn’t care about.
