Four players released by the Buffalo Bills on Friday evening have already landed jobs on active rosters elsewhere in the NFL.

The headliner of the group is veteran defensive tackle Dwan Edwards, who has signed a free agent deal with the Carolina Panthers. He may very well end up as a starter in Carolina, where he'd be playing next to another former Bill in tackle Ron Edwards. Carolina found a starter from Buffalo's cast-offs last season, as well, in right guard Geoff Hangartner.

Another former Bills defensive tackle, Kellen Heard, was claimed on waivers by the St. Louis Rams. 2012 fifth-round draft pick Tank Carder was claimed on waivers by the Cleveland Browns, where he'll be playing for former Bills head coach Dick Jauron. Finally, rookie sixth-round guard Mark Asper - who was expected to be part of Buffalo's practice squad - was instead added to the Minnesota Vikings' active roster.

The Bills, meanwhile, have not yet made any official roster moves since they cut down to 53 players. That includes not officially naming any practice squad members, though receivers Kamar Aiken and Marcus Easley, end Jarron Gilbert and cornerback Isaiah Green are expected to be added there.
