The Buffalo Bills today announced they have released several back-end roster players. Offensive tackle Tony Hills, safety Mark LeGree, receiver Terrell Sinkfield, and cornerback Don Unamba were released. Our depth chart has already been updated.
Hills played 17 snaps against the Minneosta Vikings and spent time with the Steelers, Broncos, and Colts since being a fourth round pick out of Texas in 2008. LeGree was in for four plays against Minnesota and has shuffled around the NFL with eight stints with seven teams in his two-plus seasons since being drafted in the fifth round. Sinkfield signed on August 3rd but never impressed with anything but his speed, playing nine snaps in two preseason games. Unamba saw plenty of playing time notching 55 plays this preseason in a cornerback field thinned by injury.
The roster now officially stands at 81 players, not including Jairus Byrd (unsigned contract) and Chris Hairston (PUP list). Kevin Elliott is likely be placed on injured reserve with his torn ACL, as well. The team will need to be down to 75 players by next Tuesday, August 27.
