It’s probably not surprising in light of who they landed, but the Bills are earning some top grades in free agency.

The latest comes from FOXSports.com’s Alex Marvez, who gives the Bills the best grade in the AFC East and one of the best in the NFL. Here’s part of what he wrote.

Impact moves: The Bills stunned the NFL by winning the bidding for defensive end Mario Williams, who was considered the prize of the league’s free-agent class. Fellow end Mark Anderson also was signed, giving new defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt the bookend pass-rushers he wanted in Buffalo’s new 4-3 scheme. The Bills re-signed wide receiver Stevie Johnson, middle linebacker Kirk Morrison and tight end Scott Chandler before the start of free agency.

Washington, Philadelphia and Green Bay were the only other NFL clubs to get ‘A’ grades. Denver was tops with an ‘A+’ mark.
