The Buffalo Bills wide receiver room might turn out to be a group with a decent amount of turnover this offseason and that got started on Wednesday.
Just hours after the NFL announced the 2021 salary cap was set at $182.5 million, wideout John Brown was released. Considering that cap number only left Buffalo with near $3M in cap space, Brown’s cut, which saved the team $7.9M, makes sense.
Defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson was also released.
But this is a piece about the wide receiver room.
While Brown is out the door, others could soon follow and it’s a situation that isn’t really being talked about much in Buffalo. The Bills have a few other notable pending free agent wide receivers and the free agent market opens in less than a week (March 17).
Among those are:
Isaiah McKenzie ($962.5K AAV)
Andre Roberts ($2.3M AAV)
So all things considered with free agency nearly here and the 2021 NFL Draft on the horizon, here are the remaining players left on the Bills’ roster as things currently stand:
