Bills cut OL Daryl Williams to free up salary cap space

The Buffalo Bills released offensive lineman Daryl Williams in a move Monday that frees up about $5.5 million in much-needed salary cap space entering the NFL’s free agency period.

Williams had two years left on a contract extension he signed last offseason. He played at right tackle and right guard, starting all 17 games last season and 33 overall in two years with Buffalo.

Cutting the seventh-year player leaves Buffalo about $6.2 million under the cap and leads to the expectation that more salary-related moves are coming before free agency opens on Wednesday.

The two-time defending AFC East champion Bills have needs to address at cornerback and defensive line, with pass rusher Jerry Hughes and defensive tackle Harrison Phillips eligible to become unrestricted free agents.

The Bills’ line is undergoing a shuffle, with Jon Feliciano also being cut over the past two weeks.

The moves coincide with changes to the offensive staff after coordinator Brian Daboll was hired to coach the New York Giants in January. Ken Dorsey was promoted to coordinator, while Aaron Kromer was hired as offensive line coach to replace Bobby Johnson, who joined Daboll in New York.
