While Buffalo Bills fans spent the day playing "Where's Mario?" all around Western New York, I've been cyber-stalking every Twitter account and Buffalo sports site waiting to here one way or another about if Williams will sign. You know what I've found out since last night? Pretty much nothing... well, nothing of note anyway...

Williams stayed the night in Buffalo. Williams went to Buffalo Medical for a physical. Williams met with Buddy Nix for a few hours at 1 Bills Drive, then went (along with Dave Wannstedt) to pick his fiance up from the airport. After that, he went back to the facility while his girl was taken for a tour of the city by Bills officials. Williams got a similar tour after a little while, then returned to the Ralph.

Mario Williams is undoubtedly one of the NFL's premier pass rushers, which would make him an intriguing option for the Patriots, who would love to add some help in that department.
