NFL Roster Cuts: Buffalo Bills Release Shawn Nelson, Per Report

With the 6:00 PM NFL roster cut deadline looming, Buffalo Bills cuts continue to trickle in. The latest player to be released: third-year tight end Shawn Nelson, per a report from Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk.com.

The news follows a tweet from the agent of undrafted rookie tight end Zack Pianalto indicating that his client had made the Bills' 53-man roster.

Nelson was the team's fourth-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Southern Mississippi. Considered a steal at the time, Nelson's career has been one rife with disappointment. After missing the bulk of his first two seasons with migraine issues, Nelson then missed all of this year's pre-season schedule with an undisclosed injury.

With his release, Nelson finishes his two-plus year Bills career with 21 receptions, 182 yards and a touchdown. At the moment, from what we know, the Bills still have four tight ends on the roster - and with Pianalto reportedly entrenched behind starter Scott Chandler, we're now just waiting for word on David Martin and Mike Caussin.
