NFL Roster Cuts: Buffalo Bills Release Ed Wang, Per Report

The Buffalo Bills won't be announcing their full list of NFL roster cuts until later this afternoon after their Saturday practice concludes. That doesn't mean we won't hear of cuts beforehand, and the first to go - per former ESPN AFC East blogger Tim Graham - is second-year offensive tackle Ed Wang.

Wang was Buffalo's fifth-round draft pick in 2010 out of Virginia Tech, but played very sparingly as a rookie after missing most of training camp and the early parts of the season with a thumb injury. He spent much of training camp this summer playing left tackle with the second unit, but was outshone in that capacity by 2011 fourth-round pick Chris Hairston.

Should this report come to fruition - again, it has not been confirmed by the team - you'd have to imagine that Wang will be a candidate for the practice squad, given the fact that he's a draft pick of the Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey regime. The 6'5", 312-pound lineman can play both tackle and guard, and the team may still see some upside in the 24-year-old.
