Could the veteran safety out of Kentucky help add depth to the safety position for the Bills?
Marlon McCree was drafted in the 7th round by Jacksonville Jaguars in 2001. He was the 233rd overall pick. McCree also played formerly for the Texans, Panthers, and most recently the Chargers. On Feb. 28 the Chargers released Mcree with three years remaining on his contract. This release was mostly to allow more playing time for safety Eric Weddle.
McCree would be a great addition for the Bills at the safety position due to his veteran experience. The starting two safeties for the Bills are Donte Whitner and Ko Simpson. The only other safeties that they have are George Wilson, John Wendling, and Jon Corto, all of whom are young. Adding a veteran like McCree would get some veteran leadership at the safety position. Jon Corto is likely to be cut due to his lack of experience. John Wendling is an excellent and uprisng special teamer. Wilson did a good enough job for filling in for Ko Simpson after breaking his ankle during the 2007 season.
Still the Bills do need to emphasize the safety position and that’s why McCree would be a great signing for the Bills this off-season.
