Buffalo Bills roster cuts tracker, 2021

First things first, I want to remind you these are real human people losing their jobs today. Sometimes we treat them like cogs in a machine, and for many their dreams are literally being crushed right now and they will never wear a helmet again.

The Buffalo Bills and the other 31 NFL teams need to cut their rosters to 53 players by 4 p.m. EDT on Tuesday. In the article here, we will continuously update the leaks and rumors until the team announces the final roster at some point.

I’ve listed the entire current roster below and when we get a name, we will cross it off and add the tweet into the top of the article.
