Report: Former Buffalo Bills Player Signs With a Division Rival
The Buffalo Bills will get a much deserved week off this week.
The Bills head into their week 7 bye week at 5-1 and atop the AFC standings. The Bills have gotten used to early bye weeks, since they have seemingly gotten them most years under head coach Sean McDermott.
The Bills are playing great on both offense and defense. In fact, the defense is playing phenomenal, all things considered (injuries and competition).
If it wasn't for the badly missed tackles on Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, the Bills could've held the Chiefs to just 13 points, which is asinine to think about.
The Bills are hopeful to get cornerback Tre'Davious White back for their next game, which is a week 8 home night game against thee Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
Bills fans are likely thinking about the Miami Dolphins still, as their only competition in the AFC East, but the New York Jets are the team right now that is nipping on the heels of the Bills in the standings at 4-2.
On Tuesday, the Jets signed a former Bills player, who was just released by Buffalo on Monday.
According to NFL reporter Jordan Schultz, the Jets have signed for Bills linebacker Andre Smith.
Smith was suspended the first six games of the 2022 season by thee NFL but was reinstated on Monday, which is when the Bills released him.
The Jets signing him should come as no surprise, since Smith can help a defense which is already playing at a high level and it never hurts to grab a former player of a division rival for some key pointers on that former team.
Smith was with the Bills since 2020 as a backup and special teams player.
