In another surprise move regarding the Buffalo offense, the Bills have cut starting LT Langson Walker.
The 30 year-old veteran from Cal was part of a series of signings in 2007 under former GM Marv Levy to re-tool the offensive line. Walker agreed to a then five-year deal worth $25 million. Other moves at that time included the signing of LG Derrick Dockery (who was cut last February) to a seven-year, $49 million contract.
It is unknown for certain who will fill Walker’s role at tackle, though it appears that Kirk Chambers – who was cut last week and then re-signed – or Demetrius Bell may be called upon Monday night.
This offensive line is now one of, if not the youngest in the NFL, and likely starting two rookie guards in Eric Wood (Louisville, 28th overall 2009) and Andy Levitre (Oregon State, 51st overall 2009). There is no question that the line has a tremendous amount to prove already being labeled by many experts as the worst in the NFL.
Update: Demetrius Bell has been named starting LT
