Today Buffalo released Derek Brim, a free agent safety from Canisius High School that came to the Bills via the State University of New York at Buffalo. Brim came to UB as a walk on wide receiver but was moved to defensive back because the Bulls had no need for a receiver.
In 2012 the then-Junior stepped in as an injury replacement, making the final five starts of the season. On the year he had 47 tackles (33 solo) including seven unassisted tackles against Pittsburgh. During his senior season Brim made 58 tackles and forced two fumbles, one of them setting up UB's first score against Ohio.
Brim went undrafted and was signed shortly after by the Bills. He played in three preseason games, missing one because of an injury. He managed four tackles during the games that did see action and it's possible the Bills will bring the safety on for their practice squad.
