After Aaron Williams signed a four-year contract extension Wednesday, every arrow is pointing in the direction of Jairus Byrd not being retained by the Buffalo Bills. With one safety locked up through 2018, the focus shifts to who will fill the shoes of the three-time Pro Bowler, who the team decided to leave untagged earlier this week.

Of all four preseason games, the third preseason game is supposed to be the closest to a regular-season game. Most starters around the league play for an entire half during Week 3 of the preseason, as NFL teams try to get their key players ready for regular-season action before resting them for the most part in the final preseason game on Thursday.

If Saturday’s game versus the Washington Redskins was any indication of how the Buffalo Bills will look when the real season begins, the Bills could be in for another long season. The Bills struggled mightily on both sides of the ball Saturday, and lost the game by a final score of 30-7.

That said, there’s no reason to harp on the final score: preseason results are ultimately meaningless and are often misleading. What are significant, however, are the reasons that the Bills ended up giving up so many points and scoring so few, as there were plenty of takeaways from Saturday’s game that could be cause for concern.

The preseason is halfway over and the Buffalo Bills have some important roster decisions to make in the near future. On Aug. 31, the Bills and all other NFL teams must cut their rosters down to 53 players. While some cuts will be easy, there are plenty of Bills who are currently on the bubble.

Just in case you aren’t familiar with the term, a bubble player is someone on the edge of making the Bills’ regular season roster. Take a look at some of Buffalo’s bubble players, and where I think they currently stand in terms of a final roster spot.
