The usually stingy Buffalo Bills defense has yet to find its identity this season. This might be the perfect week to create one. Following back-to-back losses to the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs — games that saw the Bills struggle in just about every area defensively — the Bills face the winless New York Jets on Sunday.
The Buffalo Bills have released a 29-year-old with four-plus seasons of experience starting at left guard in the NFL. The Bears happen to have a need at left guard. The Bills announced they were releasing Quinton Spain on Wednesday, just months after signing him to a three-year contract extension.
Justin Zimmer earned his way onto the Buffalo Bills' 53-man roster, but another team gave Buffalo a little push to make the move on Wednesday. Zimmer, 27, joined the Bills in mid-August and made the most of his time on the roster before roster cutdown day. Although he did not make Buffalo’s 53-man roster, the Bills added him to their practice squad, named him among their four protected players and elevated him to their main roster ahead of their Week 1 matchup against the Jets.
