Mike Edwards

The final player is Mike Edwards, who hasn't typically entered the season as a starter but with injuries he finds his way into the starting lineup and playing well. In 2020, Edwards helped the Bucs win a Super Bowl as he would play in 16 games but not start a game. However, in the playoffs he would get the start in the NFC Championship Game and then play 47% of the defensive snaps in the Super Bowl.

Edwards would end up playing four seasons in total in Tampa Bay before signing as a free agent last offseason with the Kansas City Chiefs. Once again he would begin the season as a backup but end up having to start five regular season games and four playoff games in the Chiefs run to a Super Bowl title.

He is a veteran safety that has plenty of playoff experience over the five years in the NFL. If the Buffalo Bills wanted to keep their options open in terms of the NFL Draft to add a safety, Edwards would be a perfect signing as a player to compete with that rookie for the starting job.
