BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills are giving oft-injured cornerback E.J. Gaines a third opportunity to resume his career by agreeing to a one-year contract on Thursday.
Buffalo also agreed to sign offensive lineman Daryl Williams, who played mostly tackle during his previous five seasons with the Carolina Panthers. Williams' addition provides the Bills experienced depth and has the potential of having returning starter Cody Ford make the switch to right guard.
Ford started 15 games during his rookie season at right tackle, but coach Sean McDermott hasn't ruled out the possibility of him shifting positions. Williams started 41 games for Carolina and is also familiar to McDermott and Bills general manager Brandon Beane, after the two previously worked for the Panthers before arriving in Buffalo in 2017.
