The notable cuts are Sterling Moore, Randell Johnson and Jerome Felton. While Manny Lawson serves as the biggest surprise as All 22 noted earlier.
Moore was released by the Bills after signing with the team as a free agent in April. The cornerback has experience playing in the slot and outside, which could draw interest from several teams. Moore could be a good fit in Chicago. The Bears have made it known they are looking for some cornerback depth.
Johnson, the Bills’ seventh-round pick in 2014, played in 15 games over the course of two seasons in Buffalo. The linebacker has just seven tackles in his career.
Felton’s release is noteworthy because the fullback was apparently beat out by rookie Glenn Gronkowski (brother of Patriots All-Pro TE Rob Gronkowski). The veteran Felton struggled to be a reliable blocker and lacked versatility. Buffalo was impressed by Gronkowski’s ability to play tight end as well as fullback. The rookie FB is on Buffalo’s 53-man roster after being an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State.
