Wide receiver Trent Sherfield is bound for the division-rival Buffalo Bills after one season with the Miami Dolphins, the Bills announced Monday.
Sherfield was likely to be on the move after the Dolphins signed former New York Jets slot receiver Braxton Berrios, a University of Miami alum, and decided to hold on to River Cracraft in the receiving corps.
The Bills add Sherfield after releasing former Broward County high school football standout Isaiah McKenzie, a product of American Heritage in Plantation who notably had success against his hometown Dolphins over the years.
Sherfield had his best season of his five-year NFL career in 2022 with the Dolphins. He established career highs with 30 receptions for 417 yards and two touchdowns as he elevated himself to be Miami’s No. 3 wideout over fellow free-agent acquisition Cedrick Wilson Jr.
Sherfield’s most notable highlight with Miami was his 75-yard touchdown on a pass from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on the first offensive play of the team’s Dec. 4 loss at the San Francisco 49ers, his former team. Like Cracraft, Sherfield followed Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel and wide receivers coach Wes Welker going from San Francisco to Miami last offseason after being with the 49ers in 2021.
Wilson is still under contract in 2023 with Miami. The team also has second-year player Erik Ezukanma returning in its receiving corps.
Sherfield is the second Dolphins pass catcher to go to a division rival in free agency. Tight end Mike Gesicki is signing with the New England Patriots.
With Sherfield gone, both parties involved in Miami’s infamous “butt punt” are now moving on. Punter Thomas Morstead, who booted a ball off Sherfield’s backside in the Dolphins’ Sept. 25 win over Buffalo, left for the New York Jets.
Despite that miscue, Sherfield is still considered a valued special teams contributor. He played 183 special teams snaps for the Dolphins in 2022, accounting for 40 percent of the unit’s total plays.
