The Bills only managed to sack the opposing quarterback 29 times in 2011, which ties that at 27th in the NFL with the Packers, Colts and Chiefs and the addition of Mario Williams could immediately increase the Bills pass rush ability. In a division with Tom Brady and a Dolphins team that could land Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn, being able to rush the passer will be a must.
