ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WBEN) - Kyle Williams is playing another season with the Buffalo Bills. 

Williams, the longest tenured player on the roster, will be signing a 1 year contract worth $6 million once the free agency period starts on Wednesday. 

The 34-year-old said his health is not an issue. 

"We wouldn't even be at a point talking about a one year contract extension if I didn't feel healthy and play in way where I'm healthy and play and protect myself and let it rip and get after it in the way I always did," Williams said. 

The signing comes days after the Bills made moves of trading Quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland and Offensive Tackle Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati.  Williams said he's on board with the decisions the team is making. 

"I believe in what they're trying to do," Williams said. "I believe in their vision of what they're trying to build."

Williams now prepares for an upcoming season with the Bills as they look to build on the success of 2017. 

"My job now is to get ready to play," he added. "To work out and get bigger and stronger, and get ready to go and lead some guys and bring this team as close as I possibly can together so we do have the opportunity to chase something like a championship."

For the past 12 seasons the defensive tackle has called Buffalo home and looks forward to what the future brings. 

"Buffalo is home, it's where I want to be, it's where I want to win and I couldn't be more excited."
