While the Buffalo Bills made a key move to re-sign pass-rusher Jerry Hughes on Monday, they lost another key player from their defense on Tuesday, when safety Da’Norris Searcy reportedly signed with the Tennessee Titans, according to ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky.

The move, which was first reported by Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, gives the Titans a much-needed upgrade at the strong safety position. It leaves the Bills, however, without a clear starter at the position alongside Aaron Williams.

With the recent trades for running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Matt Cassel to Buffalo, the Bills added $15 million in cap hits for the 2015 season, according to Spotrac’s salary cap numbers. As a result, the Bills are down to “roughly $13 [million] in cap space,” according to ESPN’s Mike Rodak, which will force GM Doug Whaley to be creative in trying to make improvements through free agency without spending big money.

It has been reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that McCoy’s contract will be restructured, which should free up more cap space this year in exchanging for giving McCoy more guaranteed money in later years. But while this may give the Bills more flexibility, it still won’t be enough for them make many more major acquisitions. That said, the Bills might able to land the following five-pack of signings and re-signings if they are smart with how they negotiate their contracts.

While all eyes are on the 2015 NFL draft class this week at the NFL Scouting Combine, free agency is just around the corner, as the NFL league year opens up on March 10. As a result, Buffalo Bills free agents were the hot topic of discussion when Bills general manager Doug Whaley spoke with media members in Indianapolis.

I’m not in Indianapolis but as always, significant notes from Whaley’s time with the press spread quickly across the airwaves of Twitter.
