NFL Rumors: Buffalo Bills Could Move Cornerback To Safety This Offseason

The Buffalo Bills are likely moving on from one of their two starting safeties this season.

As a result, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that the team could potentially move rookie cornerback Christian Benford to safety this offseason.

The Bills' expensive duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer were injury-riddled players all year, with Hyde playing just two games due to a neck injury and Poyer starting just 12 games while having seven different designations.

Poyer is set to be a free agent and Hyde has a $10.5 million cap hit that the Bills could look to move on from.

However, the fact that the Bills are considering moving positions for Benford indicates that they will be moving on from at least one of their starting safeties this offseason.

In nine games this season, the twenty-two-year-old Benford recorded 24 total tackles, one interception and five passes defended. 

He is a former sixth-round pick by the Bills in the 2022 NFL Draft.
