The Los Angeles Rams announced that they have signed Nickell Robey-Coleman via the team’s Twitter account. He will join Robert Woods as former Bills and USC Trojans who have made the trip back to LA and the Coliseum this offseason.
NRC had been with the Buffalo Bills since 2013, when they signed him as an undrafted free agent. He played in all 16 games of every season since then, starting in 15 of those 64 contests. Robey-Coleman held down the nickel cornerback slot for the majority of his time in Buffalo, mainly be assigned to the opposing team’s slot receiver. He performed solidly in that role recording 133 tackles, 5 sacks, 3 interceptions, and 2 touchdowns in his 4 seasons with the Bills.
The Bills moved on from NRC early this offseason when they cut him, shedding $1.62 million in cap space. The offseason losses of him, Stephon Gilmore, Aaron Williams, and Corey Graham leaves the Bills with quite a few holes in the secondary. They’ve brought in Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer to fill some of the spots, but more will need to be addressed in through the draft.
