08:05 AM ET 07.27 | Welcome to a spartan camp site, Mario Williams. Williams, the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history, is sleeping on twin beds at St. John Fisher. He's 6 foot 7 and 292 pounds. There's no way he's sleeping comfortably. Lumbar woes await. That's why Bills players generally bring their own mattresses to camp. "This is my first time being away from home because typically we would have camp in town," Williams said, comparing his St. John Fisher experience with the Houston Texans' setup. "This is a little different. "When I got here guys were, like, 'Did you call Rent-A-Center?' and I said 'No, I didn't call Rent-A-Center.' Nobody even told me about it until I got here. I am sleeping on twin-size beds and no TV."

They only get 3 stations in Buffalo, and two of them are in French.

Players are probably sleeping in Ralph Wilson's beds that he saved over the years.

This is one situation where the right thing for someone like me to do is call for the top bunk.

Don't let the bedbugs bite !

Awwwwwwwww ... no television. Sounds like Auschwitz. On the bright side, he can't watch ESPN and see what it sounds like for a multi-millionaire moron to whine about not having a television.

Funny if he ends up on IR because of a little **** bed.
