The Buffalo Bills have re-signed cornerback Levi Wallace to a one-year deal.

The team announced the move on Wednesday at an interesting time. Wallace, 25, was a restricted free agent. Buffalo did not tender him a contract as a RFA and he briefly became an unrestricted free agent.

However, the two sides evidently decided to work together on a deal and it’s for 2021. Financial details for the contract have yet to be announced.

After signing with the Bills as an undrafted rookie out of Alabama in 2018, Wallace eventually got a chance to start across from Tre’Davious White that season and has ever since.

Despite that, the Bills continued to bring in veteran cornerbacks on one-year deals to compete with him the past two years and Wallace will get a chance to start again with this contract. In most cases, he keeps finding ways to get playing time and he has remained a consistent player on the Bills defense.

His competition in 2020, Josh Norman, is an unrestricted free agent… But 2020 rookie Dane Jackson will factor into the battle for playing time at the No. 2 corner spot, per Bills general manager Brandon Beane.
