O'Leary heads list of Bills cuts that emerge late
The Bills officially announced their 34 roster cuts late this afternoon, bringing them down to the 53-man roster limit. There weren't any real surprises. Earlier in the day, word leaked out that they had cut wideout Corey Coleman and that they had traded quarterback AJ McCarron to the Raiders for a fifth-round draft pick.
As had been speculated, Nick O'Leary was a casualty at tight end. The Bills decided to keep Khari, Lee, Jason Croom and Logan Thomas, along with Charles Clay, of course. Jon Ryan was cut, so veteran Colton Schmidt survives a late challenge to his job as the punter.
Here are the cuts that had not come out earlier on roster trackers: WR: Kaelin Clay, Austin Proehl, Rod Streater; RB: Keith Ford, Travaris Cadet; TE-O'Leary; OL-Ike Boettger, Josh James, De'Ondre Wesley; DL-Matt Boesen, Mike Love, Terence Fede, Rickey Hatley; LB-Corey Thompson, Xavier Woodson-Luster; DB-Ryan Carter, Levi Wallace; P-Ryan.
Cuts that came out earlier: LB-Tanner Vallejo; DL-Albert Havili, Tyrunn Walker, Ryan Russell; DB-Breon Borders, Dean Marlowe, Kelcie McCray; OL-Mo Porter, Gerhard de Beer, Adam Redmond; WR-Brandon Reilly, Corey Coleman, Cam Phillips, Malachi Dupre.
Of course, the players at the bottom of the roster can't rest easy. More cuts are bound to come when the Bills grab players who hit the streets after being cut from other teams around the NFL.
