The Buffalo Bills have released 12 players in the past two days, first by cutting veteran defensive lineman Alan Branch then making 11 more roster moves Monday, but the biggest wave of cuts will come later this week.

The Bills play their final preseason game Thursday at 7 p.m. against the Detroit Lions at Ralph Wilson, and will then have until Saturday at 4 p.m. to trim their active roster to 53 players.

Which players will survive the next round of cuts? Furthermore, how should the team’s depth chart stack up heading into Week 1? And among the players who will be cut, who are the best candidates for the team’s 10-man practice squad?

One day after releasing Alan Branch—a starter on the defensive line last season—the Buffalo Bills made 11 cuts Monday to bring their roster down to the 75-man limit ahead of Tuesday’s deadline.

There were no surprises among Monday’s cuts.

It’s time for the Buffalo Bills to start thinking about cutting their roster down to size.

Their preseason is more than halfway over, as they have played three exhibition games and only two more to go before the regular season begins. On Aug. 26, the Bills will have to trim their roster from 90 players to 75. Just four days later, the Bills will only be able to have 53 players—the regular-season limit—on their active roster.

In two weeks, the Bills will only have 53 players on their active roster. Over the course of their contests against the New York Giants (Hall of Fame Game), Carolina Panthers (Aug. 8) and Pittsburgh Steelers (Saturday), it has become more clear who those 53 players should be, and which of those players should be leading the depth charts at their respective positions.

After the team’s release of its first unofficial depth chart prior to the Hall of Fame Game, I took my first stab at projecting who the team’s 53 players would be after its final cuts. Going into Week 3—arguably the most important and telling week of the preseason—some depth charts have been reconfigured and four players who were previously left outside now look like they will be sticking around.

The speculation as to how the Buffalo Bills depth chart should stack up this season is far from over, but we now know how the team currently sees it. Prior to their practice Monday evening, the Bills released their first unofficial depth chart of the preseason.

Roster Move Rundown: Buffalo Bills Trim Roster To 50 Players With 5 Cuts

Saturday, August 31st, 2013

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.
