Bills release seven, including Wendling, Fine

According to the Buffalo Bills' team website, the new regime at One Bills Drive released seven players on Tuesday: TE Derek Fine, DE Jermaine McGhee, LB Ashlee Palmer, DT Marcus Smith, S John Wendling, WR Justin Jenkins and C Marvin Philip.

It looks as though the new regime isn't going to keep many players around that are only special teams contributors, being that they let go of Palmer, Wendling and Jenkins. All three were key contributors on the team's coverage units under former special teams coordinator Bobby April.

The team had significant investments in two of these players, as Fine was a fourth-round pick in 2008, while Wendling was a sixth-round pick in 2007. McGhee, Smith and Philip were placed on IR prior to the season beginning. Palmer is not a good schematic fit for the team's new 3-4 defense, and Jenkins may have been the casualty of a numbers game at receiver.

It's nice to see the roster overhaul begin! (Hat tip to silverstreak3k for breaking it first here.)

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
