The Bills are meeting with a veteran cornerback on Tuesday as they try to bolster an injury-riddled secondary.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that Xavier Rhodes will be visiting with the team. Rhodes spent the last two seasons with the Colts and has not been on a roster at any point in this league year.

The Bills went into Sunday’s game against the Dolphins without cornerbacks Dane Jackson and Tre'Davious White and rookie Christian Benford fractured his hand in the loss. They were also missing safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, so they’re thin across the board in the defensive backfield.

Rhodes had 39 tackles and an interception in 13 starts for the Colts last season. He was a three-time Pro Bowler and one-time All-Pro while with the Vikings earlier in his career.

  1. Hopefully he just visiting for buffalo wings, and they aren’t serious about signing him. Loved him as a player, but he’s done for

  2. Update:
    Rhodes broke his wrist signing his contract, as per the expected outcome with the Bills’ secondary.

  3. I’ve been saying this for 3 years — he’s no longer physically capable of playing CB, but he’d be great at safety and the Bills are down two starting safeties.

  4. He could do well in the Bills zone scheme. The coaching staff always seems to get the best out of players in the secondary.
