Buffalo Bills Release Jon Corto, Per Report

Per a report from Aaron Wilson at Scout.com, the Buffalo Bills have released safety Jon Corto, an Orchard Park native.

Corto, 27, has been with the Bills in one form or another since entering the league in 2007 as an undrafted free agent out of Sacred Heart. He was re-signed to a two-year contract last year to play special teams for the Bills, but he was a rare part of the team's defensive plans, having not appeared there since Dick Jauron used him as a reserve linebacker earlier in his career.

Corto missed five games in 2010 with a wrist injury, then spent the entirety of the 2011 season on Injured Reserve. In a three-year span (2008-2010) in which he received playing time, Corto appeared in 43 games for the Bills, registering 37 tackles and a forced fumble as one of the team's go-to coverage specialists on kicks and punts.

Per the folks at Rotoworld.com, the Bills will be saving about $675,000 in salary by making this move.
