The Buffalo Bills have had a pretty amazing off-season this year. They traded for LeSean McCoy and Matt Cassel, they signed Charles Clay away from the Dolphins, they landed Percy Harvin from the Jets and now they have a chance to land a player who has always played well against them in Kyle Arrington. Yesterday, the New England Patriots released Kyle Arrington, and the Buffalo Bills should be making a move to land him.
The Bills currently have Stephon Gilmore, and Leodis McKelvin as their starting corners, but they have both been banged up over the past couple years with injuries. The Bills have not been able to fulfill their safety position and their best cornerback Corey Graham is actually good enough to play either CB or Safety. While the Bills have a glaring need at Safety, this pick up would help the Bills out dramatically.
Arrington knows the Patriots scheme since he is a seven year veteran, and he could come to Buffalo to help try to dethrone the Patriots from the AFC East. With Brady now being suspended the Bills need to pull out all shots to take over the AFC East.
Since Arrington was released, he can sign with any team at any time. Also if Arrington is signed today, it will not go against the Buffalo Bills compensatory picks which they are currently scheduled to land 2-3.
