The Buffalo Bills continue to make moves to revamp their defense ahead of the upcoming season.
They’ve now added a former third-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings, signing Cameron Dantzler to a one-year deal, and waiving fellow CB Kyler McMichael to make room for him.

The veteran CB entered the league in 2020 and showed plenty of promise in his first campaign in the league.
However, he failed to keep that momentum and was cut by the Vikings midway through his third season, being later picked up by the Washington Commanders.
Nonetheless, Ron Rivera’s team also waived him a couple of months later, so this might as well be his final shot to prove that he can produce at an elite level in the NFL.
Dantzler will wear No. 26 for the Bills.
Coincidentally, he’s made 26 starts and 35 total appearances since entering the league.
Throughout his career, Dantzler has piled up 17 passes defended, 149 total tackles, six tackles for loss, three interceptions, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
The Bills also signed veteran LB Leonard Floyd and will hope to have Von Miller back on the field to start the season.
Their offense will obviously steal most of the headlines, but the defense is what might as well be able to get them over the hump once and for all.NEXT: Video Shows Damar Hamlin Back On The Practice Field For Bills
