MIAMI GARDENS, FL – Former Pro Bowl defensive end Mario Williams has been asked by team officials to start repaying a portion of the 17 million dollar contract he signed back in March. With the bulk of his signing bonus spent on guns, camouflage vests and custom designed contact lenses, Williams will be found selling beer in the north end mezzanine level during games.
General Manager Chris Grier thinks this move should benefit all parties.
“We got together and realized there was a pretty big misunderstanding around some of the language in the contract. We were under the impression that we were paying for him to produce on the field. Ya know, like actually play in the games?” said Grier.
“We thought it was fair to recoup some of the money we foolishly gave him and since he’s not doing anything during the games anyways and we need the extra help in the mezzanine level, this feels like a natural fit.”
If Williams is unable to payback the entire signing bonus by season’s end, team officials have granted permission for Williams to continue working his section for the Pitbull concert scheduled for late January.
