Signs are looking good for Mario Williams in Buffalo, but there’s no done deal yet.

Williams remains in Buffalo this afternoon after having dinner with potential future teammates and coaches last night, and he has taken both a visit of the Bills’ facilities and a physical, according to reporters in Buffalo.

Perhaps more importantly, Williams has brought his fiancee to Buffalo. Paul Peck, a sportscaster at WIVB-TV in Buffal, reports that Williams picked up his fiancee at the airport and then headed back toward the Bills’ facilities. If Williams wants his fiancee to see Buffalo, that would indicate he thinks there’s a good chance they’re going to be living there.

However, a league source cautions to PFT that a deal is “absolutely” not done.

So it remains to be seen whether the Bills will succeed in their quest to make a big splash in free agency, nearly 24 hours after the best defensive player on the board made the trip to Buffalo.
