The Buffalo Bills have signed safety Aaron Williams to a four-year extension. Williams made the transition from cornerback to safety last season with promising results.

On Wednesday the Bills rewarded him with a four-year deal worth $26 million. The deal includes $14.625 million guaranteed, and comes with a $6.25 million signing bonus.

“Aaron Williams is a versatile player who has grown into a key playmaker for our defense in recent years,” said Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley. “He had an extremely productive season for our defense in 2013. Aaron is the type of young, core player we targeted early in the process to retain for years to come and this will be our philosophy moving forward. By building on his improved play in 2013, we expect Aaron to continue to grow into a key contributor for the Bills organization.”

Williams tied for the team lead with four interceptions and was second with 82 tackles. Williams broke up 11 passes in his 14 starts.
