Receiver Williams wants to stay in Buffalo despite benching; tells agent to end trade talks

Buffalo Bills receiver Mike Williams is still not at all happy about being benched last weekend. That doesn't mean he wants out of Buffalo.

Williams took matters into his own hands by saying, "I'm the boss and I want to be here," in ordering his agent Hadley Engelhard to stop seeking trade offers. At the same time, Williams defended Engelhard for opening discussions by saying the agent was merely doing his job.

The comments were Williams' first since general manager Doug Whaley revealed on Monday the Bills granted Engelhard permission to seek a trade. It happened a day after the fifth-year player was inactive for the first time this season in a 37-22 loss to New England.

It's unclear whether Williams will play Sunday, when Buffalo (3-3) hosts Minnesota (2-4).
