Searcy is set to make $10.5 million guaranteed under the terms of the deal. He recorded 65 tackles and racked up a career-high three interceptions with the Bills last season.
“Searcy is going to be a little challenging with Searcy just because we have paid Aaron Williams and there’s some money tied up in that position,” Whaley said, via the Bills' website. “Searcy may probably garner starter money at safety. That’s going to be a little more challenging trying to get that done just because of the cap space dedicated to that position.”
Searcy totaled 65 tackles, two forced fumbles and three interceptions in 2015.
Whaley said he expected Searcy to get an offer on the free agent market that will be out of the Bills' price range, calling it "starter money".
Searcy had 65 tackles and three interceptions for the Bills last season.
Spiller is making his return from injured reserve and will be playing in his first game since Week 7. Also active after being listed as probable are safeties
The Bills are a 6 1/2-point favorite for Sunday's road matchup with the Raiders.
