Rafael Bush retires; Bills sign Kurt Coleman

Recommended Posts

Must be some kind of injury involved.

He’s a much different type of safety than Bush is imo, but he’s an upgrade for this system, as long as he can still play.  McD always got the most out of him and he knows the system well.  Good signing imo.

Because he started his career in philly with McDermott - so it’s a philly connection

I think McD just told Beane to hire his friend.

That's fine, I was hoping he would be cut.  Big drop off in talent from Poyer and Hyde.  Should be easily replaceable.

He is good depth, knows the system. McD really got him to elevate his game in Carolina similar to Poyer

I'm still a big fan of Siran Neal. I think he can be a force. We're good, plenty of depth.

Nope, but Dabney’s his uncle.

This is one of those afterthought signings that barely makes a blip on anyone's radar but turns out to have a crucial impact on the Bills defense. Coleman knows and has produced in McDermott's system and should replace Bush seamlessly.

I had though that Siran Neal and maybe even Jaquan Johnson would overtake Bush this year anyway, but now I'm not so sure. Coleman is a borderline starting level safety in the NFL.

My thinking was the same as Sal's - pretty sure Neal passed him on the depth chart before this, but either way I was, and still am, more excited to see Neal fill this position. Bush was primarily used in big nickel for QB/backfield pressure, and while he held the fort, I think Neal has more of the traits needed to fill that role - he's always been a big hitter and equally contributes on ST.

My immediate thought is - upgrade. Wonder what led to the decision this close to training camp.

great signing.  Secondary depth was missing about 2 years ago.  Now, we have it.  Very important.
