One positive thing that has come about for the Buffalo Bills and the the Jarius Byrd situation is that they get to look at the younger guys and allow them to have more reps than if Byrd was there.
In the off-season, with George Wilson being released, the Bills moved Aaron Williams to the safety spot to make up for the gap. With this move, we were looking at Williams and Byrd as our safeties. Not too bad of a tandem. With Byrd’s absence, Searcy has stepped in next to Williams and the two have taken the majority of the reps so far in camp. Searcy is no Byrd but a competent replacement and is still young to make an impact.
Buffalo, also went out and drafted Duke Williams and Jonathan Meeks for the Safety position. They are stacked at a young age for the back two which can lead to inexperience, but with Searcy and Williams plugging up holes, the Bills are not too far behind the eight-ball for the safety position.
Marrone has kept his thoughts on the field and to those players that are on the field. Worrying about the politics and off field issues will only cloud, what is a monumental task that has been put on his shoulders from both the Organization as well as the fans to pull this team around to where we all know they should be.
