4:23pm: The Bills officially announced that they’ve waived Jefferson, tweets Wilson.
2:59pm: A few weeks after signing him to a futures/reserve contract, the Bills are waiving linebacker Willie Jefferson, reports Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter). As Wilson notes, Jefferson isn’t a fit for new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s scheme.
In his first NFL season in 2013, Jefferson saw very little action for the Texans, appearing in 20 total snaps in six games. Given his lack of NFL experience, the 23-year-old, who played his college ball at Stephen F. Austin, will have to pass through waivers before becoming a free agent.
