Buffalo Bills Release Two Players, Lean Younger
The Buffalo Bills are making some moves. Moves that look like they're leaning towards younger players, releasing veteran players Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes.
To fans, the releases won't come as a shock; Benjamin in particular. Fans have been quick to criticize Benjamin's lack of production as the number one receiver. Adding to the frustration that on critical scoring plays, Benjamin didn't seem to be able to hold onto the ball.
His release comes just two weeks after Benjamin was quoted as saying he felt like he'd hit rock bottom. In an interview about the upcoming off-season he said, "It's definitely going to be a fresh start. Once I find a team, or if I'm still in here in Buffalo, whatever, I'm just going to keep pushing. I learned a lot about myself. Just keep going. That mentality, just keep pushing. Once you hit rock bottom, I guess, it's only up from there, right?"
Over the past few weeks the Bills have added players Isaiah McKenzie, Deonte Thompson and called up Robert Foster. All have all seen increased playing time in that time period.
Filling the two vacant spots on Buffalo’s roster are DE Mike Love and CB Denzel Rice from the practice squad.
