Headed into free agency this off-season, defensive end Mario Williams figured to be one of the most highly sought after players available. And until quarterback Peyton Manning jumped in head first, that’s exactly the way it would have played out.

Still, Williams isn’t likely to find himself searching for suitors, and multiple sources have indicated that the first stop on his tour will be in Buffalo.

The Bills might be a surprising choice for some, given the likely interest from other teams, but Buffalo has plenty of cap space and a definite need for an impact pass rusher, so they’ll almost certainly pull out all the stops in an attempt to lock Williams down before he leaves town.

Other clubs expected to show interest in acquiring Williams include Chicago, Seattle, New England, and Atlanta.
