Damar Hamlin’s injury during the 2022 NFL Season was one of the most-remembered moments from the year.
The NFL world stopped, waiting to hear a status update on the Buffalo Bills safety.
While it was initially unknown if Hamlin would ever return to play, he joined the Bills in training camp.
And, as Hamlin has recently shared via Clutch Points, he has made the Bills’ 53-man roster.
"EARNED NOT GIVEN!!!"

In this post, Hamlin detailed his excitement, saying, “Earned, not given!”
He will now look to make an impact on the Bills’ defense, which was one of the league’s best last season.
They have recently announced that Von Miller will miss at least the first four games of the year, a devastating blow to this unit.
However, the Bills learned how to win without Miller last year, so they are used to playing without him.
Hamlin’s excitement has reignited the fire in the eyes of many Bills fans, who are anxiously waiting to see how the team performs this season.
Josh Allen has brought the Bills fanbase hope, something they haven’t experienced in quite some time.
While they have continued to make the playoffs, the Bills haven’t made it back to the Super Bowl in the Allen era.
Will 2023 be the season they break this proverbial curse?
With Hamlin back, he immediately brings life into their defense.
Both sides of the ball need to work together to achieve this common goal of making a deep postseason run.
It won’t be easy given the current depth of the AFC.NEXT: Bills Make Roster Decision On Damar Hamlin
