Veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams will wrap up his career with the Buffalo Bills this Sunday.

The Bills announced Williams' retirement on Friday and tweeted out a statement from him with the caption #ThankYouKyle.

In the statement Williams says, "This isn't easy. It was never going to be. There's no perfect time to retire from a game, a franchise, and a city that means so much to me and my family. But it's time to hang up my cleats."

The Bills drafted Williams with the first pick of the 5th round in the 2006 draft. He spent all 13 seasons in the NFL with the Bills. During that time he made 5 Pro Bowl appearances. 

During the 2018 season, he was second on the team in quarterback hits, third in sacks and fifth in tackles for loss. Williams is the team's all-time leader among defensive tackles in sacks. He's played in 183 career games, the most by any defensive tackle in Bills history.
