The likelihood of seeing former No.1 pick Mario Williams back in a Houston Texans jersey is becoming slimmer and slimmer. Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have met the conditions to sign Mario and that the two sides are really close to a deal.
Despite Williams indicating that he wanted to test the waters, the Bills offer of $50 million in guaranteed money has certainly kept the star defensive end/outside linebacker intrigued. It looks like the Texans are going to be without their most coveted defensive player in 2012.
