105.5 The Team – One day after adding veteran WR Percy Harvin to help bolster an injury plagued receiving corps, the Bills looked to address another need, this time on the defense.
On Wednesday the team announced the had signed veteran safety Sergio Brown to the 53-man roster. Brown, 28, entered the NFL with the Patriots in 2010 and spent the 2015 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Upon signing Harvin on Tuesday, the Bills subsequently placed S Aaron Williams on the IR. It’s a move some reports suggest may signify the end of his NFL career, after Williams suffered his second serious neck injury in as many seasons, back in Week 7.
While the Bills are still equipped with three safeties behind Williams – Jonathan Meeks, Robert Blanton and Duke Williams, of which Williams has filled in for the majority of snaps – none of them have provided much stability at the position.
As a seven-year veteran with 15 starts and 139 tackles under his belt, Brown at the very least provides Buffalo with temporarily solution at the position.
In order to make room for Brown the Bills had to release CB Marcus Roberson. He was originally signed to the practice squad before the season got started, then promoted to the active roster just last week.
