The Giants have "sniffed around" free agent S Da'Norris Searcy, according to's Nick Powell.

With Antrel Rolle likely to leave in free agency, the Giants need to explore all options at safety. Devin McCourty had been on their radar prior to re-signing with New England. You could make the argument 2014 was Searcy's best season yet after logging a career-high three interceptions in 15 games. Searcy mostly played strong safety in Buffalo, though the Giants have openings at both safety positions.

Bills SS Da’Norris Searcy got all of the first-team reps at this week's minicamp.

The Bills are moving Aaron Williams to free safety, with Searcy and Duke Williams competing on the strong side. Searcy has been working with the starting defense throughout OTAs and has the early edge. A blitz-heavy rotational safety last year, Searcy is rarely used in coverage and isn't going to see full-time snaps even if he wins the job. The Bills will likely use multiple looks in the back end of their secondary.

According to Pro Football Focus, Bills S Da'Norris Searcy blitzed on 10.9 percent of his snaps vs. the pass.

Only Roman Harper blitzed more among safeties who saw at least 50 percent of their team's passing snaps. Searcy began the season as an every-down starter, but moved to a situational role when Jairus Byrd returned from injury. With Byrd expected to fly the coop, Searcy figures to compete with Duke Williams for the starting job opposite Aaron Williams.

WGR 550 Buffalo wonders if Bills S Da'Norris Searcy is on the roster bubble.

Beat writer Joe Buscaglia named Searcy his runner-up for the "Least Valuable Player" in training camp. The third-year safety was considered the favorite for the starting strong safety job this offseason, but he's been bypassed by converted corner Aaron Williams. Searcy is a physical player and was given a long look last season, but has no ties to the new coaching staff.
