The Bills have had some larger than life players on their roster who have put their stamp on the era in which they played for the Bills. But who right now is the face of the franchise?
NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks, a former Bill himself, weighs in on who he thinks the face of the team is on a national scale.
Brooks picked Mario Williams based on his talent, production and notoriety. Here’s what he wrote.
Buffalo Bills: Mario Williams
When the Bills lavished Williams with a six-year, $100 million contract as the marquee free agent of the 2012 class, the skeptics wondered if the three-time Pro Bowl selection would be able to take the team to another level. Although the Bills’ disappointing win total hasn’t matched Williams’ disruptive impact, his production (23.5 sacks, seven passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries) and performance since joining Buffalo two seasons ago certainly makes him the team’s biggest difference-maker on either side of the ball. With the Bills poised to make a major move in 2014, the rest of the NFL world might soon remember how dominant Williams can be off the edge.
Brooks also listed EJ Manuel as next in line provided he takes a big step forward in 2014.
