In a move to provide better opportunities for the players that have a chance in Doug Marrone’s eyes, the Buffalo Bills have made two roster moves today right before training camp.
Mark Anderson, DE, has been released. Anderson was signed last year as a free agent to a 4 year deal to come in and play opposite Mario Williams and to help bolster the morbid defensive line. Anderson was limited due to injury last year and only appeared in 5 games and recorded 10 tackles and 1 sack. He has obviously not shown the coaching staff enough to stay on the team, with other D-Linemen that the Bills have brought in this year as well as OLBs that could bring other options to Mike Pettine’s defensive scheme.
Another move was made by the Bills as well today. Chris Hairston, T, was placed on the physically unable to participate list, PUP. Hairston was and is still expected to compete against Erik Pears for the starting tackle position this year.
Hairston did miss some of the OTAs and all fo the mini-camp practices with a lower body injury. Being placed on the PUP will make him a observant for the start of training camp.
On Active PUP, Hairston is eligible to come off of the PUP list once he’s medically cleared to practice.
