As Kobe retires, a look at the Bills best 24s

Posted Apr 13, 2016

The Buffalo Bills don't have a five-time champion on their roster, but they have had a handful of pretty good number 24s on their roster.


Los Angeles Lakers five-time NBA champ Kobe Bryant wraps up an impressive 20-year professional career tonight at the Forum. In honor of Bryant’s last game in jersey number 24 (he also wore 8) we present the best players in Bills history who wore number 24.

Booker Edgerson – A two-time AFL champion with the Bills, the Wall of Famer was named to the AFL All-Rookie team in 1962 and was named an AFL all-star in 1965. He had 23 interceptions in his nine-year AFL career.

Stephon GilmoreThe former top 10 pick (2012) is Buffalo’s current number one cornerback. Gilmore has nine career interceptions and 50 pass breakups in his five-year NFL career. He set a career high last season with 61 tackles and 16 pass breakups despite missing the last four games due to injury.

Terrence McGee – A former Pro Bowl return man, McGee had a 10-year career with the Bills serving as a starting cornerback and primary returner on kickoffs. He set the team record for most kickoff returns for touchdowns with five. He also became the first person in NFL history to score on a kickoff and interception return in the same game in a win over Cincinnati in 2005.

Kurt Schulz – A Bills seventh-round pick in 1992, Schulz spent the first eight of his 10 NFL seasons in a Buffalo uniform. The Eastern Washington product registered 21 interceptions in his time with the Bills, which is tied for the ninth-highest total in team history.
