Mario Williams insists he's still the same player.
Williams' play fell off a cliff in 2015, as he notched just five sacks in 909 snaps. He blames Rex Ryan's scheme. Williams acknowledges he could be released, but says he'll be better than ever in 2016. "At the end of the day, if I'm not (in Buffalo), I'll show you that I'm better than what I've been before," Williams said. "Like, that's just a chip on my shoulder regardless of whether I am there or not, because given the opportunity I’ll get back to what I was." Williams turned 31 last month. Before 2015, he had notched at least 10.5 sacks in each of his three seasons in Buffalo. Not a scheme or personality fit with Ryan, Williams is guaranteed to be cut loose. The inevitable move will create $12.9 million in cap space.
