Taylor Rapp

It is likely an end of an era for the Buffalo Bills as they won't have Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer as their starting safeties. While Hyde is a free agent, the Bills could also release Poyer to save some cap and start fresh with two new starters.

However, one of those starters may not be that new as Taylor Rapp was a backup for the Bills this past season. The former Rams safety did see some significant playing time, both replacing an injured Hyde, or even in three safety looks during the course of the game.

Rapp finished the season with 50 total tackles, two passes defended and one fumble recovery. He is probably a safety better suited playing close to the line of scrimmage but does have an ability to play deep if needed.

If the Bills move on from Jordan Poyer, Taylor Rapp would be a great replacement.
