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. Jun 20 - 6:40 PM

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.

The Buffalo News says Da'Norris Searcy has a "great shot" to start at strong safety this season.

Searcy began to eat into George Wilson's playing time last year thanks to his physicality. The 2011 fourth-round pick led all safeties in bench press reps at his Combine and is a thumper that likes to play near the line of scrimmage. He's a great bet to reach 100 tackles this year while FS Jairus Byrd roams the back line.

The Bills' website mentions third-year S Da'Norris Searcy as a potential in-house option to replace George Wilson at strong safety.

Searcy, a 2011 fourth-round pick out of UNC, operated as Buffalo's third safety behind Wilson and Jairus Byrd last season. He's someone for IDP owners to keep close tabs on this spring and summer. Searcy, 24, was an impact run defender and didn't embarrass himself in pass coverage, also forcing two fumbles.

Bills SS Da'Norris Searcy (groin) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Searcy injured his groin in the first half of last week's loss to the Dolphins. While not a starter, Searcy was in a 70:30 rotation with George Wilson at strong safety for most of the season. With Searcy sidelined, Wilson will return to an every-down role, boosting his IDP fantasy value for Week 17.

Bills DBs coach George Catavolos envisions fourth-round pick Da'Norris Searcy as an in-the-box strong safety.

"I see a young man that’s physical," said Catavolos. "He’s 220 pounds, a good tackler, plays well in the box." Catavolos did concede that he's concerned with how quickly Searcy will pick up the pro game after missing all of OTAs. He's likely to focus on special teams initially while backing up George Wilson.

Bills special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven sees fourth-round S Da'Norris Searcy as a more realistic candidate for kick returns than fifth-round RB Johnny White.

Seventh-round CB Justin Rogers, a dominant returner at Richmond, will also get a look, but C.J. Spiller is still expected to be the primary option on kickoffs. Roscoe Parrish will continue as the punt returner with Searcy as a fallback option.

Bills selected North Carolina S Da'Norris Searcy with the No. 100 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Considered solid in coverage, Searcy is expected to have trouble stopping the run in the NFL, as he shied away from contact in college. With George Wilson and Jairus Byrd both returning to Buffalo next season, Searcy's playing time could be sparse as a rookie.
