Buffalo Bills cuts tracker: Watching as the Bills cut down to 53 players

New, comments

We’re tracking the Bills cuts here.

It’s the weekend after the final preseason game, which means the Buffalo Bills will be cutting their roster from 90 to 53 players. Last year, the NFL changed the roster rules and removed the initial cutdown period, which put all the emphasis on a single weekend of cuts. Teams batched their releases over the course of the weekend, and will likely do the same leading up to Saturday’s 4pm deadline.

Last year the Bills didn’t make any noteworthy moves besides releasing promising young running back Jonathan Williams (and keeping Mike Tolbert on the roster) and backup linebacker Gerald Hodges. This year, the roster bubble includes wide receivers like Corey Coleman and Ray-Ray McCloud, half of Buffalo’s tight ends, and possibly veteran quarterback AJ McCarron.

As the NFL roster cuts trickle in, we’ll be listing them all here. When the Bills start signing players to fix some vacancies, or fill out their practice squad, we’ll have you covered for that too.
