NFL teams were required to meet a roster limit of 80 by Tuesday afternoon. After releasing six players Sunday, the Bills still had 81 players, meaning at least one more player needed to get the axe this afternoon.
The Bills have announced that the unlucky player is undrafted rookie inside linebacker Brad Jefferson. With the Bills drafting two inside linebackers, moving Arthur Moats to the inside, and signing Kirk Morrison, there just wasn’t much of a chance for Jefferson to make the squad.
Jefferson had 12 tackles in his three preseason games with the Bills.
Everyone else on the roster can breathe easy for the moment, but final cuts are coming soon. By Saturday at 6 p.m., every NFL roster must be reduced to 53 players.
