Buffalo Bills Cornerbacks

Starters: Tre’Davious White, Dane Jackson, Taron Johnson (nickel)

Bench: Levi Wallace, Siran Neal, Cam Lewis

One of the changes on the defense will likely be the starting cornerback opposite Tre’Davious White. Right now, the player who seems to be the favorite is Dane Jackson, who general manager Brandon Beane spoke highly of at the end of the season.

It isn’t a guarantee that he will be the starter and will still need to beat out last year’s starter, Levi Wallace, or potentially any cornerbacks the Buffalo Bills may draft. There is still a chance they could also add some free agents before the start of training camp.

Another place to watch for some potential additions is the backup nickel job or a big nickel. Right now, the team has Taron Johnson but he is entering the final year of his contract. After him, the Bills have Cam Lewis and Siran Neal as backups but could use additional competition here.
