Bills Targeting Cardinals Safety to Bolster Secondary?

Though the Buffalo Bills have made several significant additions to their roster, there is always room for an upgrade — especially if they wish to stay in contention for a conference title.

Despite boasting one of the league’s top defensive backfields for the past few seasons, Buffalo's secondary has undergone notable depletion this offseason. Accordingly, the Bills may still be in the market for a veteran defensive back to help keep their defense among the elite units in the AFC.

Two-time first team All Pro safety Budda Baker of the Arizona Cardinals, per ClutchPoints, might be Buffalo’sideal trade target.

“Baker’s biggest problem right now, though, is that he is sick of losing in the desert,” wrote analyst Tim Crean. “The Cardinals are a dismal 43-61 since 2017. Last offseason, he asked the team for a trade. While he didn’t get one and has been relatively quiet this offseason, it stands to reason that last year’s 4-13 campaign didn’t make him want to stay in Arizona anymore.”

In addition to the departures of safety Jordan Poyer and cornerback Tre'Davious White — along with veteran defensive back Micah Hyde remaining unsigned — Buffalo was eager to upgrade the unit. They did so by selecting Utah safety Cole Bishop at No. 60 overall in last month’s NFL Draft.

Still, Baker would immediately improve the Bills’ defensive backfield. Since coming into the league as a second-round pick in 2017, Baker has six Pro Bowl appearances. In his seven seasons with the Cardinals, he has amassed 737 total tackles, 34 passes-defensed, 7.5 sacks, seven interceptions and six forced fumbles.

Should the Bills be able to trade for Baker at a palatable cost,  he could help to restore their secondary to a formidable state this season.
