Buffalo Bills Name 53-Man Roster

The Buffalo Bills released 10 players Saturday, to get to the required 53-Man roster limit.

None of the remaining 10 players cut by the Bills are overly surprising. The only interesting decision worth mentioning, is the Bills decision to cut Dan Legursky over Kraig Urbik. Urbik seemed to fall out of favour along the Buffalo offensive line throughout training camp, as they shuffled players in and out his right guard spot.

After starting 16 games last season, Urbik’s role at left guard has been overtaken by Erik Pears. While Urbik has been relegated to a backup role, CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora tweeted that the Bills have been shopping Urbik recently.

With the Bills 53-man roster officially set in place, the team moved on to filling out their practice squad today, as they re-signed Jeff Tuel, along with six others.

The re-signing of Tuel gives the Bills a quarterback that knows the system, as newly signed backup Kyle Orton gets caught up to speed.
