Is this the year that Levi Wallace locks down the starting cornerback job for the Buffalo Bills?

Over the past few seasons, Levi Wallace has been one of the Buffalo Bills’ best undrafted free agent signings. The team signed the former University of Alabama cornerback during the 2018 offseason and after going through a number of veteran cornerbacks, including the infamous half game start by Vontae Davis, it was Wallace who finished the year by starting the final seven games.

While he has started 28 games over the past two seasons, he has never truly been able to secure the full-time job opposite Tre’Davious White. In 2019, Wallace split time with Kevin Johnson, and then this past season it was Josh Norman.

Wallace returned to the Bills this offseason on a one-year deal and once again is looking to secure the starting job. Will 2021 finally be the season he does that?

Expectations for 2021 season with the Buffalo Bills

Levi Wallace is entering training camp with the Buffalo Bills as a likely member of the 53-man roster. The question is what his role will be this coming season.

As previously mentioned he has been the starter, even though he has split snaps the past two years. This year though is a little different as Wallace has been the younger player going up against the veteran. However, this year Wallace is the veteran hoping to hold off the younger player in Dane Jackson.

It will be interesting to see how the coaching staff approaches this battle because if all things are even they may elect to go with Dane Jackson as he is the younger player with more potential. However, the coaching staff has proven they can put together an excellent defense with Levi Wallace as a starter and may still lean on the veteran knowing what they have in him as a player.
