Goodbye, Mario Williams: Texan Signs with Buffalo
Super Mario is gone.
So the #houstonwhatugot hashtag campaign proved to be a failure.
The effort to keep Super Mario Williams a Texan has failed, as the free agent has signed a big deal with the Buffalo Bills.
ESPN reports Williams got a six-year deal with $50 million guaranteed, a deal that could potentially be worth $100 million (although "potentially" is usually the key word in NFL contracts.)
That much green would make even Buffalo look good, we have to admit.
The combo d-lineman/linebacker was hurt for much of the past season, and the Texans did all right without him defensively. But we'll see how the front office responds to the loss.
