Jets left tackle jabs Mario Williams
By James Walker
The Buffalo Bills and free-agent pickup Mario Williams already have become trash-talk targets. And the first jab comes from -- surprise! -- the AFC East rival New York Jets.
New York starting left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson sent a congratulatory tweet Thursday afternoon to Williams, who just signed the richest contract for a defensive player, worth $100 million over six years.
"Congrats to Mario, now he has to face us twice a year. I like our odds. Go Jets!" Ferguson tweeted Thursday.
It was a good-natured jab at Williams, but a jab nonetheless. New York did sweep Buffalo last season.
Ferguson will see plenty of Williams. The Jets and Bills play twice a year.
