Bills release OG Chris Williams, visit with veteran OT Gosder Cherilus
The Buffalo Bills are in the midst of remodeling their offensive line group. After releasing Wayne Hunter a week ago, the Bills cut veteran guard Chris Williams on Tuesday after a failed physical. Williams was entering the second year of a four-year, $13 million contract. Williams started three games for the Bills in 2014.
To fill the void of both recent cuts, the Bills visited with veteran offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus on Wednesday after he was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Cherilus started in all 16 games for the Colts in 2013 but only started 13 in 2014 due to poor play and injuries.
Cherilus wouldn't be considered the team's best offensive lineman by any means, but he is seen as an upgrade over second-year tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, who played in just one game last season.
