I don't understand what is happening at OBD. I don't care either way about him getting cut, but the way they are handling these roster spots this year  is laughable.

I am not positive that Shep is a better linebacker

In either case....neither is the answer.

I am thankful for this.  Not because what it means to the Bills but for Morrison.  The guy is a great fella, a good player, and pure class.  Good luck Kirk!

OL help is on the way!

The Bills re-signed the eighth-year player to a two-year, $4 million contract in March to provide them a veteran backup behind Nick Barnett. This leaves the Bills extremely weak in O-Line depth as well as veteran LB help. Will be changing Positional Needs accordingly.

Looking like OC is a P3 need.

That was an expensive insurance policy.  $2m to sit behind the worst LB core in football...

Given Wood's injuries 3 out of 4 years, here's a New Draft to consider (using DraftTek's Simulator):

1 13 Buffalo Barrett Jones OC Alabama
2 44 Buffalo E.J. Manuel QB Florida State
3 75 Buffalo Cornellius "Tank" Carradine DE43 Florida State
4 107 Buffalo Kenny Stills WR Oklahoma
5 139 Buffalo DeVonte Holloman OLB43 South Carolina
6 172 Buffalo Jake Stoneburner TE Ohio State
7 200 Buffalo Alec Lemon WR Syracuse

Agreed, I'd like to have a beer with the guy and get his perspective of kind of being a Buffalo Bill. I'll bet he's happy to be gone, and get paid for the remainder of the year.

You are right. No other team cuts players.

Anyone that is crapping all over Kirk Morrison should go take a look at his twitter feed. He is a stand up class guy.

How many teams sign a healthy vet, keep him inactive through 12 weeks, then cut him because he's "too slow"? That's bad personnel assessment and roster management, especially when you know exactly what you have in the guy. I like Morrison; I blame the organization, not him, as minor as this is in the scheme of the Bills' management.

No one's dumping on him. Just don't care that he's gone. The guy didn't play all year. And he may be a great guy, but I'm not shedding any tears for a guy that pocketed $2 million this year to practice.

He came into the season as the starter and lost his job 2 times over. It's not like they never gave him a chance or anything close to that.
