Bills Worked Out Seven Players Including CBs David Amerson & Tony Lippett

According to Howard Balzer, the Buffalo Bills brought in seven free agents for tryouts on Friday including CBs David Amerson and Tony Lippett.

The full list of tryouts for the Bills includes:

  1. CB David Amerson
  2. CB Demetri Goodson
  3. CB Tony Lippett
  4. CB Herb Waters
  5. OL Jeremiah Sirles

  7. DT Garrison Smith

Amerson, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Redskins back in 2013. Washington waived him during the 2015 season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins.

Amerson signed four-year, $38 million extension with close to $18 million guaranteed with the Raiders back in 2016. However, he was released last year and later caught on with the Chiefs.

Kansas City signed Amerson to a one-year deal worth up to $6 million during the offseason, but wound up being released coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Amerson appeared in six games for the Raiders and recorded 18 tackles, no interceptions, a fumble recovery and four pass defenses.

Lippett, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2,494,764 contract and was set to earn a base salary of $705,000 this season when the Dolphins released him coming out of the preseason.

Lippett landed on the Dolphins’ injured reserve in August of last year due to a torn Achilles’ tendon and missed the entire 2017 season.

In 2016, Lippett appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded 67 tackles, four interceptions, and 10 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 80 cornerback out of 110 qualifying players.
