Robby finished the 2015 season, his third in the NFL, with 46 tackles, four passes defensed, and one sack. Robey will be back with the Bills next season, but the team is pretty set at corner and it's hard to see him getting anything more than a nickel-type role. He played in 61.8 percent of the team's defensive snaps this season, up slightly from the 58.9 percent he saw the previous season.
The Bills agreed to a contract extension with defensive back Nickell Robey on Sunday, the team announced. Robey was entering the last year of his rookie contract. He produced 46 tackles and one sack in 16 games last season. "Nickell Robey has been a productive and dependable cornerback for our team since we signed him in 2013," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said. "I commend our scouting staff for identifying and signing a player of Nickell's caliber in the undrafted college free agent period. Since entering the NFL, Nickell has worked hard and taken advantage of his opportunities to make plays when called upon."
The Bills used rookie defensive back Nickell Robey in pass-rushing situations again in Week 16, and he got to the quarterback for the second straight game. Robey racked up two sacks in a 19-0 win over the Dolphins, one week after picking up his first career sack. Robey added four tackles Sunday.
Bills CB Nickell Robey is active Week 13 against the Falcons. Robey is dealing with an ankle injury. He was able to take part in full practice every day this week.
The Bills are in excellent shape as they prepare for their Sunday game against Atlanta. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams (back), who is questionable, is the lone player listed on their injury report that is not probable. Listed as probable are wide receivers Robert Woods (ankle) and Steve Johnson (groin) and cornerback Nickell Robey (ankle).
