Bills release two as team arrives for camp
Training camp has claimed the jobs of two members of the Buffalo Bills a full two days ahead of the team's first official practice. As players were moving into their dorm rooms on Friday, the team announced that they've released wide receiver Cordell Roberson and cornerback Darius Robinson from the roster.
Roberson joined the Bills during the 2013 season, signing with the practice squad at the end of October. He was one of the taller receivers the team had initially planned on bringing to training camp, standing at 6-foot-4. He was entering his second year in the league out of Stephen F. Austin.
Robinson joined the Bills shortly after the 2014 NFL Draft, signing as an undrafted free agent with the team. The undersized cornerback injured himself in one of the first practices of Organized Team Activities and could not get back on the field at a consistent level for the remainder of offseason workouts.
With the release of both players, the Bills roster now sits at 88. General manager Doug Whaley spoke with reporters on Friday afternoon and said they are intending on bringing the roster back up to it's full capacity of 90.
"We're in the process of looking at two guys now," he said. "We've got to get some physicals and stuff like that, so we may have an announcement [Saturday]."
Whaley said the team intends to sign two younger players, not veterans. The Bills have a conditioning workout on Saturday, followed by their first official practice of training camp on Sunday night.
