Buffalo Bills Cut Three Players Today
Jairus Wynn was the highest profile player out of the three but none of them were impact players. It was announced this offseason that Wynn would be switching from defensive end to outside linebacker and he lost twenty pounds in order to do so according to the below tweet from Mike Rodak of ESPN.com.
He may still need to worry about his weight but it’s not for Buffalo’s sake. The next team that signs him might have him go back to playing defensive end in a 4-3 system or they could continue the Bills experiment of having him play OLB in a 3-4 defense.

Wynn was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 6th round of the 2009 draft. He only played for the Bills one season in 2014.
Cornerback Merrill Noel was signed by the Buffalo Bills after the 2015 draft as an undrafted free agent. He played at Wake Forest in college where he won the 2011 ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year Award. The cornerback did not play a snap for the Bills last season and was released today as well.
The other player released by Buffalo was center Ronald Patrick. Patrick has been a journeyman in his short NFL career so far spending time on the rosters of the Panthers, Cowboys, Steelers and Browns in addition to being on the Bills squad last season. He also did not play a snap for Buffalo last year.
All three of these moves should have minimal impact on the team. The Bills most likely felt that after their additions in free agency, the draft, and with the undrafted free agents they added, that they now have enough depth at these positions that these players are no longer needed on the roster.
