Teams have until Tuesday afternoon to get their 90-man rosters down to 53, but a number of them are deep into that process already with the preseason now in the books. The Bills trimmed their roster on Sunday by releasing the following seven players:
- DT Cortez Broughton
- WR Isaiah Coulter
- S Jared Mayden
- T Garrett McGhin
- WR Dezmon Patmon
- TE Jace Sternberger
- LB DaShaun White
Each player, with the exception of White, has regular season NFL experience, although none have much in the way of game action. Sternberger is the most notable name on the list, given his time with the Packers to start his career. The former third-rounder had plenty of expectations after his career at Texas A&M, but things did not go according to plan in Green Bay.
Sternberger logged only 18 games across two seasons with the team, and his last NFL action came in 2020. He bounced around to the Commanders and Steelers after his time in Green Bay came to an end, and he played in the USFL this past spring. The 27-year-old led the league in receiving touchdowns with the Birmingham Stallions, which landed him an opportunity with the Bills. He will instead wind up on their practice squad or find himself in search of another new NFL home.
Depth along the offensive line, especially at the tackle position, has been a talking point for Buffalo this summer. McGhin, who has bounced around several teams’ practice squads in his career, has made two career appearances – though they both came in 2019. Especially if Buffalo elects not to add more experienced fill-in options up front in the coming days, he could find himself on the team’s taxi squad.
