The Bills placed Aaron Williams on their IR list this week due to a neck injury but still have four other safeties on their active roster. Williams started five games and played in seven for Buffalo in 2016 and has been a starter in the Bills’ secondary since 2011.
Brown, though, could provide a veteran presence as a stopgap. He played in at least 14 games from 2011-15, starting in 12 combined during the ’14 and ’15 campaigns with the Colts and Jaguars, respectively.
The 28-year-old back-line defender will join a safety corps headed by Corey Graham and Robert Blanton, the former rating as a top-20 Pro Football Focus safety and the latter the site’s No. 68 of 69 full-time performers. The Bills have now have five safeties with at least four years of NFL experience, with Duke Williams and Jonathan Meeks being 2013 draftees.
