The Buffalo Bills tried to address the cornerback position this offseason with the additions of Josh Norman and E.J. Gaines, who could end up being the surprise starter in 2020. However, both enter this season with significant question marks and if the Bills want an immediate starter an addition of Darqueze Dennard would make sense.
Dennard spent the past five seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, playing in 77 games and starting 24 of those games for the Bengals. Over that span he has 274 total tackles, three interceptions and three forced fumbles.
At only 28 years of age, Dennard could actually be the long-term answer the Bills have been looking at cornerback opposite Tre’Davious White. The Bills don’t appear committed to Levi Wallace and have tried the veteran route with Kevin Johnson last year and Josh Norman this year.
The addition of Dennard likely wouldn’t cost the Bills much as he originally agreed to a three-year deal worth $13.5 million with the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier this offseason. This is a contract the Bills could match and be that long-term answer at cornerback.
