Pittsford, NY (WGR 550) -- With so many positions up for grabs during training camp with the Buffalo Bills, it seems at least one spot has reached its conclusion. Just a few minutes into Tuesday morning's practice, the Bills officially released punter Brian Stahovich from the roster.
Earning a contract after an impressive tryout at the voluntary veteran mini-camp, Stahovich was attempting to unseat second-year player Shawn Powell for the punting and holding duties on field goal attempts.
As the competition progressed it became clearer that Powell was having the superior camp punting the ball. Stahovich also struggled holding the ball on field goal attempts, even getting to the point where Powell took all the reps as the holder for both place-kickers.
The recently released punter was spotted in street clothes on his way into the locker room to gather his belongings just a couple of minutes into Tuesday's practice.
With the transaction, the Bills roster now sits at 87. Buffalo and the rest of the NFL are two weeks away from having to cut down their rosters to 75 players, with the deadline scheduled for August 27 at 4 pm.
