The Bills have signed free agent and former Carolina Panther Leonard Johnson. The 26-year old Cornerback played in 10 games for the Panthers last season and had 30 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup.

Sean McDermott knows he needs to improve on his corners with the departure of Stephon GIlmore and believes bringing in veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis is a viable option for the Bills at the right price.

Darrelle Revis, 31, was cleared of all charges by a Pittsburgh judge in a late night incident in his hometown. Now free to find a new team, after the Super Bowl champ was release by the Jets in this offseason.

In the 2014 season, Revis, was arguably the best cornerback in the business. Revis’ ability to consistently shut down the best wide receivers was a huge reason why the patriots became Super Bowl Champions.

Revis later signed a mega contract to return to New York Jets after the Super Bowl. After two seasons the Jets released Revis as in 2016 he was a liability for the Jets as he was far from his best in that season.

Revis island was no more, instead of quarterbacks fearing him and throwing the ball in the opposite direction, in 2016 opposition quarterback were actually targeting Revis and winning.

Both the Jets and Revis agreed on that they both needs fresh starts and a return to coach Bill Belichick could be what the veteran needs to become one of the elite shutdown corners once again and they would get him at a fraction of the cost.

Revis will enter his 11th season in the NFL after being drafted in the first round (14th overall) by the New Yorks Jets.
