The Buffalo Bills had been expecting Da'Norris Searcy to leave in free agency, and that has reportedly happened: he'll be playing in Tennessee next season.

Da'Norris Searcy, like several former Buffalo Bills free agents before him, is reportedly set to sign a contract to play for the Tennessee Titans. Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean had the report first, and our friends over at The Worst Website URL Ever are talking about the signing, as well.

Searcy, 26, departs the Bills after four seasons in which he worked his way from special teams player and reserve to nominal starter. The part-time safety recorded 136 tackles, four interceptions, and four sacks over the past two seasons, when his playing time increased dramatically with Jairus Byrd first injured, and then in New Orleans.

The Bills had been expecting Searcy's departure for weeks, with GM Doug Whaley telling reporters that the team was unwilling to pay starter's money to Searcy after investing in Aaron Williams last offseason. Duke Williams, a third-year player who saw a significant playing time increase last season, becomes the odds-on favorite to replace Searcy in the starting lineup.
