Aaron Williams: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Williams, who's lost much of the last two seasons due to scary next injuries, may be leaning towards continuing his pro career, BuffaloBills.com reports. "He's leaning toward coming back," Williams' father said in a phone interview with the Associated Press. "We'll take it slow and go from there."

Williams, whose season ended after Week 7 due to another neck injury, hasn't decided yet if he will continue his career, BuffaloBlls.com reports. "I'm still not sure yet," said Williams. "I've been back and forth myself. There will be days where I want to come back and there are other days where I wake up and feel great being healthy and not hurting. I still have a little more time to think about it. This is a decision where I can't rush into it. I love this game and I love everything it has done for me and my family. At the same time I have to look out for my health."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Aaron Williams.

2016

Williams had his 2015 season cut short by a scary neck injury suffered during Week 3, but was cleared to practice in April 2016 and should be back in good form for the upcoming year. The sixth-year safety accrued 173 combined tackles and six interceptions in the 32 games prior to suffering his neck injury, and could prove to be a serviceable IDP option if he stays healthy.

2015

A productive free safety on a strong defensive unit, Williams has started 14 games each of the past two years averaging 2.5 interceptions and 79 tackles.

2014

After initially starting his career as a misfit at cornerback, Williams found his proper place at safety for the Bills last year, turning into a three-down player and earning a four-year, $26 million contract extension in the offseason. Although a rib injury cost him two games, Williams finished the year with 82 tackles (60 solo) in 14 games, and his background as a former cornerback paid off as he intercepted four passes. Williams ought to take the next step in his development now that he has a year of experience at his new position, and there should be more stats up for grabs with former star safety Jairus Byrd now in New Orleans. The Bills' uptempo offense means that the team plays more snaps per game than most other teams, so Williams should continue seeing plenty of opportunities to pile up tackles and interceptions in 2014.

2013

The depth chart in the secondary is crowded in Buffalo. Aaron Williams is a former second round pick as a corner back but has failed to perform in that role. He will move to safety for the Bills and is probably the fourth safety on the roster.

2012

Williams, entering his second season, has a good chance at a starting cornerback slot. Both spots are kind of up for grabs between Williams, first-rounder Stephon Gilmore, Terrence McGee, Leodis McKelvin, and then Justin Rogers as a dark horse, though it's thought that Williams, the Bills' second-round pick in 2011, has the inside track for one of those spots. In nine games and six starts last season, Williams contributed 32 tackles, five passes defensed, one pick, and one forced fumble.

2011

The 34th overall pick in the draft will play corner in the NFL but has safety skills as well if those are ever needed. The Bills are pretty loaded at CB, however, one of the few positions they have that type of strength, so Williams is looking like a No. 4 or No. 5 corner to begin his career.
