General manager Brandon Beane and the Buffalo Bills continues to add to a roster that earned a surprise trip to the playoffs last season. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Buffalo has signed former Carolina Panthers All-Pro tackle Daryl Williams to a one-year contract.

Williams, 25, started 41 games in five seasons with the Panthers after they made him a fourth-round pick back in 2015. He earned Second-Team All-Pro honors back in 2017.

Injuries derailed Williams’ 2018 campaign in Carolina. He returned to start 12 games last season, showing some major rust in the process. Hence, why he inked a mere one-year contract in free agency. Williams should act as a swing tackle for Carolina next season. Though, there’s a chance that he starts at right tackle with youngster Cody Ford moving inside. Williams himself could also move inside.

This is just the latest example of Buffalo adding to its already stacked roster after the team picked up star receiver Stefon Diggs and multiple contributing veterans on defense earlier in the spring.
