With Saturday’s deadline to cut down the roster to the regular-season limit of 53 players, the Buffalo Bills had a busy day Friday. The Bills released 18 players from their roster, while also placing three injured players on the season-ending injured reserve, in order to cut their roster down to 55 players (the roster was at the 75-player limit prior to the 21 moves, but free safety Jairus Byrd’s roster exemption expires Saturday).

The Bills have not made any stunning releases yet, but they have released a few names who both Ryan Talbot and I had on our final roster projections. Conversely, the Bills have a few players still remaining on their roster who neither Ryan nor I expected to make the team.

The 1982 classic album Combat Rock by The Clash had numerous hits. One of my favorites was the classic song “Should I Stay or Should I Go.” I found myself thinking about this chorus as I walked back to my car following the Buffalo Bills’ 20-16 preseason victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Friday night.

Roster decisions for the Bills coaching staff will be difficult. Coaches may be echoing the chorus of the Clash hit as they try to cut their roster down to 53 men. Many players improved their status with the team on Friday; others did not fare as well.

In our second installment of “5 Up, 5 Down,” we will again look at players who both improved and hurt their status with the Buffalo Bills during the most recent preseason games . With two preseason games left, the roster picture for the Buffalo Bills is starting to become a little clearer.

Revamp. If there’s one word that I would use to describe the difference in the Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver roster from 2012 to 2013, it would be revamp. The Bills said goodbye to three of their receivers from last season’s roster (Donald Jones, David Nelson and Ruvell Martin). When the team makes its final cuts, I expect there to be at least one more wide receiver added to the “goodbye” list.

This offseason, the Bills decided against tendering both Donald Jones and David Nelson, with Nelson coming off of a torn ACL. The Bills made it apparent that they were going to add wide receivers to their roster via free agency or the NFL draft.

Free agency came and went and no wide receivers were added, but they addressed the position in the draft. The Bills selected USC’s Robert Woods in Round 2 and Texas’ Marquise Goodwin in Round 3. The Bills also numerous wide receivers as undrafted free agents, including troubled but talented wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers.

On paper, the Bills took an area of weakness at wide receiver and turned it into one of strength. Expectations will be high for Stevie Johnson and his company among the Bills’ receiving corps in 2013.

When Brandon Kaufman entered the 2013 NFL draft as a junior out of Eastern Washington University, he expected to be drafted.

Kaufman slipped out of the draft due to a very deep class of wide receivers, but was picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Buffalo Bills.

If you can brave the bright red turf of Eastern Washington University and watch Kaufman’s film, you might see the Buffalo Bills have potentially found another David Nelson. Let’s take a look at Kaufman, an early favorite among undrafted free agents to make the Bills’ 53-man roster.
