The Buffalo Bills’ April trade of a sixth-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for veteran wide receiver Mike Williams was supposed to bring excitement to the Bills offense at a bargain-bin price. Instead, after just one significantly exciting moment early in the season, it became more clear why Williams came at a cheap cost to begin with.

Buffalo waived Williams on Monday, just eight months and a few days after it acquired him. As he was waived with an injury designation, Williams could revert to the Bills’ injured reserve if he goes unclaimed on waivers, but it’s safe to presume his unceremonious tenure with the Bills is over.

Six months later, the trade hasn’t merited much value for the Bills.

The talk all offseason for the Buffalo Bills was that if they are going to end their 14-year playoff drought, second-year quarterback EJ Manuel and the offense around him must improve significantly from last season.

Might not want to make any postseason plans if you’re a Bills fan.

It’s only the preseason, but so far the Bills offense has shown virtually no improvement from the unit that ranked 19th in the NFL in yards per game and 22nd in points per game last year.
