The cut-down tag has started around the NFL.
The Buffalo Bills and the other 31 teams have time until 4pm. to reduce their rosters to 53 players. The Bills started on Saturday with 87 players, which means 34 cuts will follow.
Perhaps the most important move is a player who is reportedly going to form the 53-man roster – quarterback AJ McCarron. John Wawrow of the Associated Press reports that McCarron will form the team.
Here's a look at who was fired, according to early reports (remembering that the bills have not confirmed any of the trains):
WR Corey Coleman – One of the biggest questions for the Bills going into the final cuts was what would happen to Coleman, whom the team acquired in trade with Cleveland in the training camp. General Manager Brandon Beane only parted company with a seventh-round pick-up in 2020 that was not big enough to give Coleman a roster spot.
WR Brandon Reilly – The broad receiver tweeted that he went "back to Lincoln" where he went to college in Nebraska. Reilly was part of a crowded competition at the receiver.
Nothing, but love for Buffalo.

OT Gerhard de Beer – The South African native was confirmed on Twitter by his agent Brett Tessler
The Buffalo Bills have just released Gerhard de Beer. .. Talented, but raw offensive lineman from South Africa could possibly be added to her practice group and several other teams were interested in the draft after him.

De Beer went on an athletics scholarship to the University of Arizona. But he signed up for Arizona with the stipulation that the school let him go to the football team as a two-in-hand. His career as a discus thrower was a great success. He finished 2012 as an 18 -year-old third place at the Junior World Championships. At the 2016 NCAA Championships, he finished his college discus career with a fourth place. His personal bestow would have been good for 12th place in 2016 Olympiad in Brazil. It is not difficult to say that he could make the Games in Tokyo for South Africa in 2020 if he fully dedicated himself to the discus.
LB Tanner Vallejo – The former sixth round was released in 2017, According to Rapoport
The cuts begin early, as the #Bills split with LB Tanner Vallejo, it said , They took him in the 6th round last year.

Vallejo spoke on Thursday after the last preseason game about what could happen.
"That's until I have complete faith in me, whatever happens to me," he said. "They will choose what they think best for the team, it's out of control now."
DE Ryan Russell – The fourth-year professional who started seven games for Tampa Bay The last season has never been able to improve the Bills' deep chart. His publication was first reported by Rapoport.

WR Cam Phillips – The undrafted rookie of Virginia Tech was a wide angle for the roster. He arrived well at the training camp, but a groin injury brought him back. Joe Buscaglia of Ch. 7 at Buffalo was the first to announce the release of Phillips, adding that he is a target for the exercise squad.
# Bill's has been released by WR Cam Phillips, but they intend to send him to the practice group,

TE Keith Towbridge – He caught the game-winning touchdown Thursday in the preseason final against the Bears, but Towbridge was the clear No. 6 behind Charles Clay, Nick O'Leary, Jason Croom, Logan Thomas and Khari Lee. The Buffalo News confirmed his release with a league source. It was first reported by Buscaglia.
C Adam Redmond – He was behind Ryan Groy and Russell Bodine all summer, although Sean McDermott repeatedly tried to tell him what Redmond brought to the team. So it makes sense that Buscaglia reports that he is a candidate for the practice group.
#Bills have released the center Adam Redmond, but if he approves the release, they will try to put him back into practice

FB Sam Rogers – As a late addition to the squad, Rogers had a great opportunity to drop the starter Patrick DiMarco
DT Albert Havili – Another late addition to the roster, Havili was a camp body ,
DT Tyrunn Walker – The Tom Pelisserero of the NFL Network reported that Walker was off the Bills but could soon find work elsewhere.
The #Bills today released DT Tyrunn Walker, it said. With lack of DL depth around league, would expect him to be picked up quickly.

OT Mo Porter – He was on the Tackle Depth Chart all summer. The unadulterated free agent of Baylor will now renounce renunciation.
WR Malachi Dupre – Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports that Dupre will not be on the 53-man list.
The Bills have released WR Malachi Dupre, according to a source. Speedy Wide Receiver, which really developed in the training squad last year. Probably the last ones have not heard of him.
