Darby was drafted by the Bills in 2016 and played in Buffalo for a pair of seasons before being traded away to the Eagles. The trade came as a bit of a surprise given the the fact that Stephon Gilmore signed away from the Bills prior to the start of the 2017 season. With Gilmore joining the Patriots, many figured that Darby would then become the No. 1 cornerback on the team. However, that was not meant to be and Buffalo decided to ship him over to Philly in exchange for Jordan Matthews and a third round draft pick.
In his two seasons with the Bills, Darby found relative success. He had 68 tackles in his rookie season and he followed that up with 69 tackles the season after. As a rookie he had a pair of interceptions but in his second season he wasn’t able to tally any picks. This season with the Eagles, Darby missed eight games after injuring himself in his first game as an Eagle. Despite the injury, Darby played well down the stretch and finished the seasons with three interceptions.
Darby will have his hands full in the Super Bowl against all of the weapons that Tom Brady has, regardless of whether or not you see them as weapons.
