Bills release OT Langston Walker, re-sign Kirk Chambers

Jason La Canfora of reports via Twitter that the Buffalo Bills have released left tackle Langston Walker.

According to the report, the Bills had been attempting to trade Walker, but were unable to do so. has confirmed that the team has re-signed OT Kirk Chambers to fill Walker's vacated roster spot.

Walker became Buffalo's starting left tackle after the Bills traded two-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters to Philadelphia prior to April's NFL Draft.  Now, Walker has been released; meanwhile, the man long tabbed as the eventual replacement at left tackle, second-year pro Demetrius Bell, has not practiced in the past week as he deals with a back injury.

It's pretty clear that once healthy - and here's hoping he's healthy, like, right now - Bell will assume the starting left tackle role.  As he's never taken a snap at the NFL level, the Bills now essentially have three rookies starting on their offensive line.
