ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — A busy offseason for the Bills continued on Tuesday with a move to add depth along the defensive line.
The club signed veteran lineman Jarius Wynn. A 6'3, 285 lb. product of Georgia, Wynn was a 6th round draft pick of the Packers in 2009.
"I feel like I have shown improvement to guys that I can play in this league and rotate in the rotation, but I’m not trying to be a rotation guy this year," Williams said. "I’m trying to come in and win the starting position and showcase my talent to be able to help my family out."
Wynn spent three years with Green Bay and won a Super Bowl there. He then went to Tennessee in 2012 before splitting last season with the San Diego and Dallas.
"I guess the biggest thing has been opportunity," he said. " Given the opportunity to really just showcase my talent when somebody gives me a real opportunity to come in and play I think that would be the best thing."
"That’s what I think has been a problem, but I’ve been grateful and glad to do whatever the team gave me and go out there and show my talent. I feel like I have so much talent in different situations, but I never just had the opportunity to really just play."
For his career, Wynn has 8.5 sacks in 58 games. He's been mostly used at defensive end, but could also provide help at tackle under new coordinator Jim Schwartz.
"As far as the D-line they have great guys up front. Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus, Mario Williams and (Jerry) Hughes. They’re pretty stacked on defense and I’m just glad to be coming in and join these guys. Hopefully we can win a bunch of games and get in to the playoffs," Wynn said.
