Former Alabama Cornerback Re-Signs With Buffalo Bills
Former Alabama cornerback, Levi Wallace, was re-signed by the Buffalo Bills to a one year deal worth $1.75 million. Wallace, entering his fourth season, was picked up in 2018 as an undrafted free agent and has added four interceptions, 20 passes defended, and 161 total tackles in three years.
Wallace, a walk-on at Alabama, is no stranger to being forced work his way up. After not seeing time in his first two seasons at Alabama, Wallace earned a walk-on scholarship in 2016, and started six games. The following season, Wallace started 14 games, finishing with three interceptions and 48 tackles on the year, helping guide Alabama to a national championship victory over Georgia.
Despite going undrafted in 2018, the Bills gave Wallace a chance and after being waived and added to the practice squad, Wallace got his chance in a week 10 game where he earned his first career start. Since then, Wallace has played extremely well for Buffalo, but the organization continues to bring in veteran talent to compete with him.
As of now Wallace's competition from last season, veteran CB Josh Norman, is an unrestricted free agent and has yet to be brought back by the Bills. Buffalo drafted another cornerback in 2020, but Wallace looks to be the starter going into the 2021 season.
