Buffalo Bills performing due diligence on available cornerbacks, per report

The team still isn’t satisfied by their depth at corner

The Buffalo Bills aren’t remaining complacent with their depth at the cornerback position. According to one report, they are scouring the waiver wire for upgrades. According to Ryan Talbot of newyorkupstate.com, after releasing veteran corner Captain Munnerlyn, the team is performing its “due diligence” on all available options.

General manager Brandon Beane hasn’t been shy about attempts to upgrade the depth at the position this offseason. Before signing Munnerlyn during training camp, the team originally signed both veterans E.J. Gaines and Kevin Johnson during free agency. However, Gaines suffered a groin injury during training camp, which necessitated adding the former Carolina Panther.

Given that it’s “Cutdown Day,” a new signing may happen quite quickly as Beane scans the recent list of players that were let go by their teams in the hopes of finding a new fourth or even fifth cornerback.

The team currently has four corners on the roster—Tre’Davious White, Levi Wallace, Taron Johnson, and Kevin Johnson. Siran Neal, drafted as a safety, has worked at nickel corner, as well.
