The most likely player who was put on notice after all the moves the Buffalo Bills made this offseason has to be defensive end Trent Murphy. The Bills added Murphy prior to the 2018 season and he is entering his final year of the deal.
For the most part, Murphy has been a bit of a disappointment and hasn’t really lived up to the expectations the team had when they signed him as a free agent. He only has nine total sacks in two seasons, which is the same total he had in 2016, which was the last year he played in Washington.
The Bills have added a tremendous amount of depth with the selection of A.J. Epenesa, along with signings of Quinton Jefferson and Vernon Butler who could slide outside and play defensive end. The team also just signed Bryan Cox Jr., who played for Eric Washington when they were both in Carolina.
The influx of talent, combined with the cap savings of $8 million the Buffalo Bills would get with cutting Trent Murphy, makes him a likely candidate to not be on the 53-man roster at the start of the 2020 season.
