The Buffalo Bills have announced cuts to get their roster to the 53-player limit. Here are all the names released, from the team’s official Twitter account:

 

As of right now, the team actually only has 52 players listed on their official roster after all the movesthat  have been made.

It’s important to remember that the final 53-man roster might not be what the Bills will go into Week 1 with, exactly. After cuts are made around the league Saturday, there are about 1,200 players suddenly on the free agent market. The Bills could claim or sign any of them and then have to release a player they initial kept.

Any player with less than four years of accrued service who was released is subject to waivers. Teams must make a claim and there is a priority order, based upon last year’s order of finish. Players with four or more years who were cut are eligible to sign elsewhere immediately.

The team will also now work on signing players who clear waivers to their 10-man practice squad.

The Bills also announced earlier in the day that they had traded quarterback A.J. McCarron to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a fifth round draft choice.
