The Bills released Thad Lewis on Saturday. Currently, rookies Jeff Tuel and E.J. Manuel are the only two quarterbacks on Buffalo’s roster.

The Buffalo Bills have been busy over the last two days. Dan Hope covered Buffalo’s first 18 cuts from Friday, and today the Bills cut an additional five players to trim their roster to 50 players. Buffalo cutting its roster below 53 players should not be considered a surprise, as the team will add recently released players in an attempt to upgrade its roster. Buffalo could use depth at cornerback and along the offensive line.

Saturday’s cuts provided a few surprises that Dan Hope and I missed on our final 53-man roster projections. It’ll be interesting to see which players the Bills add to their roster in the coming days as the team prepares for their Week 1 matchup against the New England Patriots. Without any further ado, here are Buffalo’s five cuts.

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.

As the Buffalo Bills work on trimming their roster down to 75 players, the Bills’ official website announced the release of the following five players Monday: wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers, defensive back Dominique Ellis, cornerback Jumal Rolle, wide receiver DeMarco Sampson and center Ryan Turnley.

The headlining name among the cuts is Rogers. While few deny Rogers’ talent, the wide receiver went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft. When the Bills signed Rogers, many thought the team had found a diamond in the rough. At training camp, Rogers flashed his ability from time to time. However, head coach Doug Marrone noted last week that Rogers simply did not show consistency at camp.
