Searcy set for starter’s role

He’s entering his fourth NFL season, but Da’Norris Searcy has never been a full-time starter. That will change in 2014 as he earned the starting strong safety role as he’ll be paired with fellow draft classmate Aaron Williams (2011). Searcy, who has 10 career starts under his belt already, feels ready to be a full-time contributor.

“I’m out there with the starting unit now so I just want to go out there and compete,” Searcy told Buffalobills.com. “I don’t want myself to be a weak link out there with those proven guys. The more opportunities I’m out there, the more opportunities I have to make plays and help the team win.”

Searcy was in a competition with Jonathan Meeks and Duke Williams for the role all offseason. Now that he has the job he’s focused on taking things as they come this season.

You just gotta take it one day at a time, one process at a time,” he said. “We’ve got to go through our communications and our keys so just make sure I’m on top of all those. Being able to recognize certain formations, certain routes, and just be able to put myself in the right position to be out there to make plays and help the team out.”
