The Buffalo Bills are coming off a season where they had little to no depth at the CB position. Now, two weeks after the season ended, they’re going to have to take a long look at their CB room. The Bills have a handful of free agents, including two in the secondary: Levi Wallace and Siran Neal. Losing either one of them is going to decrease their depth even further.
However, the Bills will have to decide whether or not to bring back Levi Wallace, the team’s No. 2 corner for the last 4 seasons. According to Spotrac, Wallace’s market value is $9.6M per year. This comes just a year after he took a team friendly one year/$1.75M deal. With little cap space available, the Bills are going to have a tough decision to make. Re-sign Levi? Or let him walk in favor of a veteran and/or a high draft pick?
This past season, Wallace recorded two INTs and 10 passes defended, while also allowing 45 receptions (85 targets) for 519 yards and three TDs. He was a big factor in the defense staying intact after Tre White went down. Letting Levi Wallace walk will definitely be a big loss to the secondary. However, the Buffalo Bills must make that position their main priority this off-season, with or without Wallace.
Currently, the following CBs are under contract for next season: Tre White, Taron Johnson, Dane Jackson, Cam Lewis, Olaijah Griffin, Tim Harris, and Nick McCloud.
Free Agency officially opens up on March 16th at 4:00 PM EST.
