ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have released veteran defensive tackle Dwan Edwards.

This is a move that many expected might come given the fact that Edwards was set to earn $3.8 million in base salary this season. Edwards consistently ran with the second-team defense throughout training camp and pre-season action, but was largely unremarkable in said work.

The Bills now only have three defensive tackle that are considered locks for the roster: starters Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus, as well as top reserve Spencer Johnson. Time will tell if the Bills keep a fourth tackle - Alex Carrington and Kellen Heard would be the top two candidates there - or keep a fifth defensive end, with Jarron Gilbert, who spent most of his time at tackle in camp, the primary candidate there.

With Edwards out of the picture, the Bills now have 21 more cuts to make today. (Or, rather, we have to hear about 21 cuts that the team has already made.) Stay tuned!
