Updated Buffalo Bills Depth Chart

New, comments

Yesterday, the new regime of the Buffalo Bills began their house-cleaning project - i.e. the purge of Buffalo's existing roster - by releasing seven players that, according to Scout.com's Adam Caplan, failed team physicals. Those early moves - which took place well over two weeks before the start of free agency - got the ball rolling on what could be a very eventful off-season in Western New York.

In releasing those players, Buffalo now has 72 players listed on its active roster at the team website. Well, they've actually got 73 listed, but we already know that RB Bruce Hall is headed to Denver. Of those 72 names, then, the team officially lists 22 as free agents. That leaves 50 players that are currently under contract heading into the 2010 season.

By popular demand, you'll find a depth chart after the jump consisting only of players under contract. Below the depth chart, we've listed the 22 free agents. We will continue to update this projected depth chart as the Bills, led by new GM Buddy Nix, make roster moves through free agency and the draft over the next several months.
