    I do wonder what would have happened in Watt's rookie year if Mario was there the full season...

    Pretty much expected in these monster deals. It's all about the signing bonus.

    Titans should sign, and then draft offensive line. Two birds killed with a single stone.

    Mary O-Williams had to know that he'd be cut due to his ridiculous contract. Given that he doesn't really care much about football, you can bet he'll go to the highest bidder yet again. It's just a paycheck for him and it's always been that way.

    I think he can play at near probowl level for the next 2 seasons, if he is motivated. at a lower price that's a heck of steal for a heck of a player.
    probably ends up in carolina, seattle or the whitehorse in the race, denver because of Wade.

    Mario does not fit the 34 scheme at all. Especially RAC's 34 defense. He's a 43 DE and that's it. Needs to go to a team where he'll fit in much better.

    There's no way in hell he'd agree to play DE in a 34 anyway, especially opposite Watt. It would relegate him to being a run stopper, and making sure RBs don't reverse away from Watt. And he's no OLB, especially in this defenses' needs for the OLB to be versatile.

    Mario looking for that paycheck and found the perfect suitor in Miami! :eek:

    Mario is visiting the Dolphins

    After Further Review: Here's the proof that Mario Williams quit on the Bills

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">If Miami sign Mario W I hope he has a good excuse for why he took so many plays off in '15. And don't say system. That doesn't make you lazy</p>&mdash; Simon Clancy (@SiClancy) <a href="https://twitter.com/SiClancy/status/706149528790048769">March 5, 2016</a></blockquote>

    Who is Simon Clancy? Not fitting into a system can definitely make you take plays off, that goes for any sport. Even flag football and pickup basketball.

    Not sure I agree. You might not fit into a system, and that might affect performance. But system fit shouldn't "make you take plays off". You can still work your tail off even if it's a bad fit and try to make the best of the situation

    Pretty much, yeah.....but when you are paid like the top 1%, expectations are higher than that of the 99%.
