The Bills have re-signed safety Taylor Rapp on a three-year extension, the team announced Friday.

The safety spent this past season in Buffalo and played in 16 games while making four starts. Rapp had one interception, 45 tackles, two passes defensed, one tackle for loss, a half a sack, one fumble recovery and one quarterback hit during his first season with the Bills.

"Buffalo is a special place," Rapp said. "I think the rest of the league and the rest of the world is starting to see over the last few years what this organization and what this team is capable of.

"Obviously that was something I was looking forward to in free agency last year was a place that fit me culture-wise but also fit my talents and my strengths on the field, and I think I found the place that I want to be here for the rest of my career."

Rapp said his experience as a backup to Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer last year would help him in taking a leadership role on the team in his second season in Buffalo.

"Some of the things I was able to learn last year about myself, it's going to pay huge dividends fro my future wisdom," Rapp said. "Really looking forward to being able to use those valuable lessons and valuable information that I gained last year into this next year, but also for the rest of my career and even after football."

Rapp played for the Rams from 2019-2022 before becoming a Bill. Over his career, Rapp has started in 52 games and played in 73.

The University of Washington alum has racked up 10 interceptions, 25 passes defensed, nine tackles for loss, six quarterback hits, four fumble recoveries, one touchdown, one forced fumble, two sacks and 368 tackles over his five years in the league. Three out of his 10 interceptions have allowed his team to run out the clock.

Rapp was originally drafted by the Rams in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
