The Buffalo Bills have released quarterback Matt Cassel, the team announced Saturday. 

The Bills traded a fifth and seventh-round pick for Cassel and a sixth-round pick from the Vikings in March.

Cassel was competing with Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel for Buffalo's starting quarterback job during training camp and preseason. The Bills named Taylor the starter last week. 

Cassel was drafted in the seventh round by the Patriots in 2005. He joined the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009, and spent the last two seasons with Minnesota.
