Something more to consider is that Williams will still be playing under his rookie contract for the 2014 season and his cap number is staying at $1.67M. The new contract numbers don't kick in until 2015.

The contract extension does not begin in the 2014 season, however. Williams still has one year remaining on his rookie contract that he will play under. His cap hit for this year will remain at $1,673,365. Williams will be paid his signing bonus for the recently announced extension, but the proration of that amount for the salary cap won't begin until 2015.


If they were to invest in Byrd they're probably looking at tying up over $9M and probably much closer to $10M (or even more) in salary for the 2014 season (depending on the structure of the contract, of course). That is a significant gap in terms of salary cap space being available to work with in regards to trying to sign some other guys at positions of need in free agency.

Even then Byrd hasn't left just yet. Yes, the chances are even higher now that he leaves, but until he signs with another team I'm not resigning that he is absolutely gone for sure just yet.

Mkkost not sure if that is accurate as I read on espn saying the following extension:

On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills signed safety Aaron Williams to a four-year extension.

Here are the details of the deal, broken down year-by-year:

Signing bonus: $6,500,000

2014 season:
Base salary: $2,250,000 (fully guaranteed)
Workout bonus: $100,000
Cap number: $4,231,209

2015 season:
Base salary: $1,375,000
Option bonus: $4,500,000 (adds 2018 year to contract)
Workout bonus: $100,000
Cap number: $3,900,000
Note: If option is not executed, base salary becomes $5,875,000 and becomes fully guaranteed.

2016 season:
Base salary: $2,575,000
Roster bonus: $1,000,000
Workout bonus: $100,000
Cap number: $6,100,000

2017 season:
Base salary: $3,600,000
Roster bonus: $500,000
Workout bonus: $100,000
Cap number: $6,625,000

2018 season:
Base salary: $3,800,000
Roster bonus: $500,000
Workout bonus: $100,000
Cap number: $6,825,000
Note: Only applies if option is executed in 2015.

The salary cap isn't that bad at all only for this year 9 of the 15 mil in guaranteed money is paid now and the cap numbers aren't high at all. I think this is a great deal especially with the option of 2018 for next year to be executed
