Buffalo Bills Positive: The return of Tre’Davious White

White had a dominant 2021 season allowing just over 5 yards per target before suffering a season-ending injury on Thanksgiving. White is arguably the Bills’ best defensive player and is probably the most important player to their success.

Levi Wallace and Dane Jackson were able to hold it down for the most part, but White’s absence reared its head when the Bills played teams with loaded receiving cores like the Chiefs and the Bucs. The Bills might not have much cap space going into this 2022 offseason, but if White comes back healthy, the Bills will add a Top 5 cornerback into the fold.

White’s ability to lock down one side of the field makes everyone else job easier and he has a knack for making clutch plays which is an incredibly rare trait for a cornerback. In 56 games over the last 4 seasons, White has allowed just 6 passing touchdowns in coverage. Additionally, White has come up with 16 interceptions and 5 forced fumbles during his tenure in Buffalo.
