NFL teams do not have to have their rosters trimmed to 53 players until 4:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, but it's looking like the Buffalo Bills have a head start in the matter.
Two players - fullback Evan Rodriguez and tight end Dominique Jones - have already revealed publicly that they have been let go by the team.

Jordan Palmer's stint with #Bills didn't last long. Sounds like they are cutting him.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 29, 2014
Rodriguez spent part of the 2013 season with the Bills, while Jones was added to the roster early in training camp to account for several injuries at the position.
We will continue to update this post throughout the weekend with any more news that breaks, and our depth chart will constantly be updated, as well.
The Bills have announced the release of several players, most notable punter Brian Moorman and defensive tackle Landon Cohen. Linebacker Xavius Boyd, CB Kamaal McIlwain, CB Sam Miller, WR Naaman Roosevelet, and OL Jared Wheeler were also released.
Also announced, the team placed three players on injured reserve. TE Tony Moeaki and CBs Mario Butler and Bobby Felder were added to the reserve/injured list, ending their 2014 season, at least in Buffalo.
The Bills still stand at 62 players with nine more cuts to make before tomorrow's deadline. They are still searching for a back-up quarterback, as well.
