The Bills agreed to terms on a one-year contract with one of their subpackage defensive backs on Friday as free agent DB Dean Marlowe is back with the club.

Marlowe, 27, saw some of his most extensive action on defense for the Bills in 2019.

He appeared in nine games last season, making a pair of starts, as he was part of tandem with fellow S Siran Neal who filled in for an injured Taron Johnson.

Even after Johnson returned to the lineup, defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier would utilize Marlowe (6-1, 208) in a big nickel role chiefly against two tight end sets.

Marlowe has also had a steady special teams role for the Bills last season.

Although Marlowe's time on the field has not been extensive in his four NFL seasons, he's worked under head coach Sean McDermott for his entire professional career. His first two years he played under McDermott in Carolina.

Marlowe will provide valuable depth behind Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer at safety and nickel corner Taron Johnson.
