Bills release Rambo, five other players

Posted Aug 29, 2017

The Bills had until Sept. 2nd before they had to make cuts, but on Tuesday they trimmed six players from the roster.

The NFL eliminated the roster cut down to 75 this year allowing all teams to carry up to 90 players right through to the final cut down to 53 on Sept. 2nd. The Bills however, decided to trim their roster before that deadline on Tuesday releasing six players.

Headlining the cuts was safety Bacarri Rambo.  

Rambo, who was signed by the club just before training camp opened, was hoping to get a second stint with the Bills. Rambo however, could not move past second team safeties Shamiel Gary or Trae Elston on the depth chart.

The other players released were OL Karim Barton, DE Jake Metz, RB Cedric O’Neal, CB Jumal Rolle and return man Rashad Ross.

The cuts now put Buffalo’s roster total at 83 players.
