The Jets offensive line uncertainity has been in full force this preseason. The team has gone from supporting Wayne Hunter as the right tackle. Then they proceed to bench Hunter and name Austin Howard the starter and days later trade Hunter to the Rams for right tackle Jason Smith, a 2009 No. 2 pick.

So with all the questions on the Jets line, you know that the Bills defensive line has to be licking their chops. The line welcomes back defensive tackles Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus, the 3rd overall pick in last years draft. The Bills then went out in the offseason and signed defensive ends Mario Williams (6 years/potentially $100 million) and Mark Anderson (4 years/ $19.5 million) to bolster their pass rush.

AFC East rivals can’t be too happy about the Bills offseason moves and it is evident in the way the Jets will be preparing for Mario Williams.

The official Bills twitter tweeted the following:

Ryan, who spoke to reporters in Buffalo, also said that Williams is one of the biggest challenges Austin Howard would face.

“The only thing worse than that would be the Ware kid (DeMarcus Ware of the Cowboys) that’s going against someone tonight,” Ryan said. “That’d probably be the only bigger challenge.

The fact that the Jets are preparing like this shows the respect they have for Williams. In two career games against the Jets, Williams has 2 sacks and 11 tackles (1 assisted).

What do you think of the Jets practice preparation? Is Williams in for a big day? Let us know in the comments…
