MUST read for all of you. Aaron Williams is one of my all time favorite Bills. Maybe top 4 along with Kyle, Stevie, and Freddy J. These are guys that are “My Bills.” Tbh Fitzy is up there as well.

Either way, this was such an emotional piece. Nothing but love and respect for 23.

Beat me to it. One of the best Players Tribunes I've ever read, that last paragraph got me pretty good. 

Like you, I also loved Aaron Williams and is one of the first guys I think of when I think of my generation of Bills, Lee Evans replaces Stevie Johnson for me though even though I love Stevie. 

You could feel the heartbreak at not being able to play anymore and missing the playoffs this season. I can't believe how young he is, he's still only 27 and was in the league only six years and several years were severely limited due to injuries. 

He won't be a guy whoever gets on the wall but he will always be a player I remember and loved watching play.

I love guys like him and Stevie because they grew up in front of our eyes, and wanted to stay here. After reading countless posts on this site about how guys don’t want to come here, they accepted us, and our city and made the best of their time here. They CHOSE us and I’m forever grateful for that. I’m glad we could all play a role in their maturity to outstanding young men.

Absolutely. I think Aaron hit the nail on the head when he was talking about how his first two years he didn't take seriously, I think Bills fans just want players who are willing to fight and give it their all for the team. Sure being talented and winning is great but at the end of the day they just want guys who care and want to be there. The difference between Gillislee's departure and Gilmore's underlines that, even though it was to the same team. 

I respect the guys that stayed because it wasn't easy and they could have had success elsewhere if they had left. Hell I wish some of the drought guys had left so they could taste success after giving so many years to the team and the fans.

Didn't have access to post anything until now. Glad to see you all carrying the torch for Williams. It's so hard to see his pain at not being able to play. I'd love to see him come in to help the DB's...maybe even becoming a secondary coach one day.
