Inside The Bills

Mario Williams-ready to “settle down..focus”

He’s been a regular participant in the Bills voluntary Organized Team Activity for the last several weeks. And two-time Pro Bowl Defensive Lineman Mario Williams says he’s settled down, and ready to focus in his second year with the Buffalo Bills.

Willliams was a guest Wednesday night on The John Murphy Show. He finished 2012 with 10-1/2 sacks, good for sixth in the AFC. But he talked about feeling like a rookie in his first year with the Bills, after signing a big free agent contract.

“There were a lot of things going on last year,” Williams said, “but it makes you tougher. The more adversity you go through, the more I feel like I can handle it.”

“Last year, I felt like it was almost like my rookie year all over again–in the sense of new place, big deal, and everything that went on with coming to Buffalo. Now it’s my second year, and I’m really excited about going after it,” he told host John Murphy.

“I think the biggest thing for me is settling down, clearing my mind, being able to focus,” Williams said.

Williams said the wrist injury that required surgery after six weeks last season is fully healed now, but it took until earlier this year for it to feel 100-percent.

“It’s fine now,” he said. “Honestly, I felt it all the way up to right when I came back (April 2013) when we started working out. It wasn’t as bad obviously but it was tight. It was still bothering me a little bit.”
