When the Buffalo Bills were courting defensive end Mario Williams for a job with the team, he spent an evening with Hall of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly and his wife Jill at their home just outside of East Aurora. Now, after signing with the Bills he's moving in across the street .
The Buffalo News reports the Bills' $100-million dollar player has purchased a house on Woodcrest Drive, Kelly's street, for $2 millon. The large stone mansion was built by local attorney Kenneth Bernas who - about a year ago - was convicted of swindling millions of dollars from clients and investors and using the money to build the house, The News reports.
The 9,389 sq. foot home features over 13 rooms (5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths), according to the Realtors' MLS listing. It features a 5-acre lot, four car garage, several fireplaces and "limestone, marble and cherry flooring" throughout.
