The Buffalo Bills acquired safety Dean Marlowe in a trade from the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced Tuesday afternoon. They send a seventh-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft to Atlanta to seal the deal.

Marlowe, 30, returns to the Bills after spending the past two seasons with the Detroit and Atlanta Lions. He left Buffalo as a free agent after the 2020 season after spending three seasons as a reserve in defense of Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier. During his three seasons with Buffalo, he recorded two interceptions, one fumble recovery and seven passes defended while playing mostly on special teams and as a substitute.

The Bills have already lost safety Micah Hyde for the season with a neck injury, and fellow starting safety Jordan Poyer has dealt with a slew of injuries this season. Most recently, he broke his elbow in the Bills’ win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, and the team has yet to provide an update on his status ahead of the Week 9 game. the team with the New York Jets.

Marlowe joins a Bills safety group that includes Poyer and fellow starting Damar Hamlin, as well as Jaquan Johnson as backup. Marlowe knows the system very well and could therefore be considered a plug-and-play starter if Poyer is on the verge of a miss at any time and the team is not comfortable rolling with Johnson in the long term. .

We will have more on this trade as more information becomes available.
