3 players who the Buffalo Bills could cut after minicamp

The Bills have a few key battles to watch as well, and they could end in some veterans being released before they even make the hour and twenty-minute drive to Rochester for training camp.

Sam Martin 

Sam Martin had his lowest yards per punt average since the 2019 season with the Detroit Lions, averaging 45.8 yards per punt in 2023. Unfortunately for Martin, he’s 34 years old and the Bills have his potential replacement on the roster in Jack Browning. Releasing Martin would save Buffalo another $1.6M in salary cap, according to Spotrac. While this move wouldn’t be for salary cap reasons, the Bills would make this move to go younger after two seasons with Martin at the helm. 

Buffalo signed Browning, another San Diego State product, immediately after the draft. He averaged 46.1 yards and 45.4 yards per punt in his last two years in college and had a long of 66 yards. He also doubled as the school's kicker, making all 53 extra point attempts, along with 35/47 field goal attempts in college. 

A big question that Browning needs to answer, is whether he can hold for Tyler Bass. The Bills make it a priority that their punter can successfully hold for their kicker, and with Browning doubling as a kicker in college, he likely doesn’t have experience in that area. Buffalo could give him a crash course this summer on how to hold, much like they did not too long ago with Matt Araiza if they truly want Browning to make the roster.
