Bills Sign DB Akeem King, DT Niles Scott

The Bills have signed defensive back Akeem King, per a club announcement. King will help bolster the team’s cornerback depth following E.J. Gaines‘ decision to opt out of the 2020 season.

King has spent the last two seasons with the Seahawks. Last year, he suited up in 13 games, including three starts, plus a fair amount of time on special teams. With good size and bulk for the cornerback position, King could be called upon to guard larger tight ends. If he makes the roster – and it seems likely that he will, given the loss of Gaines – he’ll slot somewhere alongside Tre’Davious White, Josh NormanTaron Johnson, and Levi Wallace on the CB depth chart.

In addition to King, the Bills have also signed defensive tackle Niles Scott. Scott suited up in six games for the Bengals in 2018 but was off the field last year due to a foot injury.

    Look I’m only here for the most information detail of this story.

    Does this make the Seahawks King of the Niles?

    Maybe the Bills should focus on the other side of the ball since Steve Hauschka is still their best offensive weapon.
