The Bills have announced new defensive end Mario Williams will wear No. 94.
Williams wore No. 90 for six years for the Houston Texans, but current Bills defensive end Chris Kelsay was not willing to give up the jersey, and Kelsay said Williams did not lobby him to give up the number. Williams wore No. 9 in college at North Carolina State. He wore No. 82 in high school.
Defensive end Kyle Moore, a three-year NFL veteran, wore No. 94 for the Bills over the last seven weeks of last season. He was added to the team in November off Detroit's practice squad. Moore is now No. 54 for the Bills.
No. 94 does not have a long history for Buffalo, but it's a good one. Aaron Schobel wore it from 2001 to 2009. Special teams ace Mark Pike wore it from 1987 to 1998. Before that it was worn only by Richard Tharpe and Billy Witt.
