Da'Norris Searcy drawing interest from four teams in free agency

Da'Norris Searcy was going to capitalize on a weak safety market all along, and it's happening quickly, with four teams already expressing interest in him in free agency.

We knew going in that the Buffalo Bills were going to have trouble keeping free agent safety Da'Norris Searcy from leaving for greener pastures, and that expectation appears to be manifesting already: ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that four teams have already expressed interest in Searcy's services.

Those teams: the Indianapolis Colts, the Houston Texans, the Miami Dolphins, and the Oakland Raiders.

Speaking as far back as two weeks ago at the 2015 NFL Combine, Bills GM Doug Whaley had told reporters that the team wasn't willing to pay Searcy starter's money, having already invested a big contract into the position with Aaron Williams. Given the heavy early interest, it appears astronomically unlikely that the team will be able to match any offer Searcy receives on the open market.

If Searcy does, indeed, leave, third-year pro Duke Williams would become the favorite to replace him in the starting lineup - though the Bills could certainly address the position in free agency, as well.
