With virtual team activities underway, some former Buffalo Bills are still waiting for their phone to ring and their next team invite to come aboard. Some may be waiting for quite some time as the normal rash of bumps and bruises or worse that test a team’s depth won’t happen until in-person drills start.
Below is a list of 2019 Bills who remain free agents:
- Maurice Alexander - Linebacker
- Julian Stanford - Linebacker
- LaAdrian Waddle - Tackle
- Kurt Coleman - Safety
- Corey Liuget - Defensive Tackle
All of these players saw the field for the Bills in 2020 except Waddle who tore his quad muscle in the offseason.
Alexander and Stanford were both reserves behind Matt Milano, Tremaine Edmunds, and Lorenzo Alexander with Maurice Alexander also being a core special teamer. Liuget was a midseason signing after the loss of Harrison Phillips to injury and although was fine in spot duty, he didn’t have a place in the d-line rotation after the signings of Vernon Butler and Quinton Jefferson. Coleman was arguably the most consistent contributor often getting reps at the safety spot any time either Jordan Poyer or Micah Hyde weren’t on the field. However, with the team gaining more tenure across the board under defensive coordinator/assistant head coach Leslie Frazer and Coleman turning 32 this summer, it may have been a case of age and need both working against him in 2020.
