Just a handful of hours prior to the 4pm league deadline, the Bills made the necessary decisions to reduce their roster to 75 players.
Headlining the list of players released was seventh-round pick Kennard Cox. The defensive back was the last of Buffalo's three seventh-round selections, but was at arguably one of the most competitive positions in training camp.
Cox was even used at free safety in the preseason to explore other possible position options. The Pitt product is expected to merit strong consideration for Buffalo's practice squad which will be assembled early next week.
Also released on Tuesday were punter D.J. Fitzpatrick, receiver C.J. Hawthorne and defensive end Shaun Nua.
The final roster move to get Buffalo to the required 75 player limit was accomplished by placing quarterback Matt Baker on the waived-injured list. Baker suffered a broken rib in the preseason.
