On Wednesday afternoon, the Bills persuaded defensive end Mario Williams to change his plans and spend a second night in town, even though other teams are clamoring to bring him in.
And by promising publicly that Williams would be back at team headquarters on Thursday, the Bills may have boxed themselves in when the time came on Wednesday to try to hammer out a deal.
One way or the other, the process soon must end. Either Williams will be getting a deal done in Buffalo, or he’ll be moving on to the next team that wants to meet with him.
As a source with knowledge of the situation said, “We are finally at the critical point. . . . No more time left.”
And so we should know something today. Hopefully, this morning.
