Buffalo Bills fans may see some notable names be cut during training camp this year. That and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

While this time of year is full of optimism for Buffalo Bills fans, the same is true for the 90 players on the roster. But of course, that group must be cut to 53 by the time the season starts.

And with an influx of rookie and free agent talent, some players from the 2017 team may be on the way out.

Training camp cuts are always interesting for all NFL teams. Reliable veterans are sometimes let go, only to be immediately snatched up by another team. For the Bills, players at positions like wide receiver, cornerback and offensive line could be in danger of losing their job due to the competitions set to take place.

One thing both fans and players know is that loyalty only goes so far when it comes to professional sports. Teams are always looking to improve and that could mean releasing veterans who have sacrificed their bodies throughout the years. It’s just the way it works.

Here is a look at that concept and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

Karas is back with a look at some Bills veterans who might not make the final roster. As stated above, this can sometimes include some players who have been around for quite some time. However, it can also be those who were brought in with little to no chance of making it, barring a legendary training camp.

A lofty goal shared here, but one that should always be had heading into any season. If the defense can carry the team, perhaps some questions at quarterback won’t do too much damage to the team’s playoff hopes.
