Buffalo Bills Training Camp: Fast-Tracking Da'Norris Searcy

Here's a Buffalo Bills player taking sporadic first-team reps at training camp that isn't being talked about much (yet): second-year strong safety Da'Norris Searcy. BuffaloBills.com reporter Chris Brown pointed out on Friday that Searcy, as he did Thursday, took a few reps with the ones.

Searcy won't be a starter for the Bills - Jairus Byrd and George Wilson are locked in as the starters at safety - but it's looking possible that the Bills are preparing Searcy for a legitimate defensive role, much the way they are playing Kirk Morrison, Bryan Scott, Arthur Moats and Nigel Bradham with the ones at linebacker.

It's just speculation on my part, but the wrinkles may be yet another reaction by the organization to the immense difficulty they've had covering tight ends in recent seasons. Within the first five games of the 2012 season, not only do the Bills get New England's Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, but they also get San Francisco star Vernon Davis, the underrated Dustin Keller in New York, and a returned-to-health Tony Moeaki in Kansas City.
