Buffalo Bills fan favorite Kyle Williams has announced his retirement from the NFL. He will play one final game on Sunday.
He has played his entire career with the Bills for the last 13 years. His final game with the team will be against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York.
Williams — who is a five-time Pro Bowl selection — announced his retirement on a letter to the fans. In the letter, he announced why it is the right time to step away.
Here is the letter to the fans:
There’s no perfect time to retire from a game, a franchise, and a city that mean so much to me and my family. But it’s time to hang up my cleats.
A singular word sticks out when I look back on my NFL career. Grateful. To have spent this much time with one team. To have had the opportunity to get to know this organization, this community, and more importantly, the people. To have raised my family here. To have made countless memories and friendships, on and off the field.
Thank you to the Pegulas, to the Wilson family, to my teammates, to Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane, to my family, and to the fans. I’ve been at this a really long time but it doesn’t feel like it, and that’s a testament to your unwavering support. I could not be more grateful to retire as a lifelong Buffalo Bill.
