Buffalo Bills should not release Rasul Douglas

The Buffalo Bills this offseason are going to be looking for ways to create cap space and one move that would create almost $10 million would be to release cornerback Rasul Douglas. The Bills traded for Douglas at the trade deadline and he has been the starter the past two games with the big game against the Jets with two interceptions and one fumble recovery.

Douglas is currently under contract through the 2024 season with a cap hit of $9 million and none of it is guaranteed. This means if the Bills were to release him, that entire amount would be added to their cap space.

However, the Bills have too many questions at cornerback that it creates too much risk to release Douglas. The biggest question is around Tre'Davious White, who suffered a torn Achilles in Week 4, and it is unknown when he will be ready to return.

If he can be back to begin the season, this is a move they might consider, but the Bills shouldn't go into the season once again with a trio of Christian Benford, Kaiir Elam, and Dane Jackson fighting for the two starting spots.
