NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday the Buffalo Bills have given wide receiver Mike Williams permission to seek a trade.
After losing Eli Manning’s go-to receiver, Victor Cruz, to a season-ending torn patellar tendon, the New York Giants are one potential suitor. The Giants have “some” interest in Williams and will likely at least “explore” trade talks, reports Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
The six-year, $40.5 million contract inherited by the Bills includes a $5.2 million fully guaranteed 2015 salary as well as a $1 million roster bonus due on the third day of the league year.
Bills general manager Doug Whaley is seeking value commensurate to a No. 1 receiver in return for Williams.
“If he gets me compensation worthy of a No. 1 receiver, which he claimed he is,” Whaley said, “then we would entertain it.”
