With only 4 CB on the roster and 4 safeties one of which basically plays special teams only did bills place themselves in a bad situation if we get any injury at these positions?

The Bills recent luck streak for DBs health has been solid over the last 5 years, right ?

Except for TE, DL, FB we aren't exactly stacked.  Would be nice if the Bills had a CB on the PS, one safety who I never heard of.  We can always cal up Colt Anderson or the CB we just released.

 

We are going to keep a lot of DLineman with their rotational scheme.  

 

FWIW  as Belichek always says you can never have enough CBs in this league, Pats have 5 CBs and 6 Safeties, so far that strategy isn't working out for them this season.

The Bills are going for quality over quantity? I like the starters and Wright is not the worst back-up in the league, but I still worry about cutting a guy like Mabin who was a solid system fit and showed a nose for the ball in the PS. Hopefully we see him on the practice squad and can call on him if someone goes down.

Need to keep a watch on Mabin hope no other team picks him up, to the OP point, realistically we are going to need another CB at some point this season, nice to have him in the wings.

Just roster management... we wouldn't go into New England with 4 corners, but we probably can against Carolina. Gives us a chance to get looks at other players
