Marcell Dareus, Da’Norris Searcy return to Bills OTAs


The Buffalo Bills welcomed back safety Da'Norris Searcy and defensive tackle and Marcell Dareus to the team on Tuesday after they both missed voluntary workouts last week, according to

Dareus explained he had some personal issues keeping him out of previous workouts. However, he didn't expound on why he wasn't in camp.

In two seasons since being a first-round draft pick out of Alabama, Dareus has become an anchor on the defensive line. Last season, Dareus had 39 tackles and 5.5 sacks after recording 43 stops and the same amount of sacks in his rookie campaign.

Searcy has recorded 73 tackles over two seasons and one interception.

Buffalo needs all hands on deck with a completely new regime in place. First-time head coach Doug Marrone has quite a job on his hands with a rookie quarterback in the starting mix in E.J. Manuel alongside journeymen Kevin Kolb and Tavaris Jackson.
