The Buffalo Bills need to trim their roster down to 53 players by Saturday at 4 p.m. Buffalo started to trim their roster earlier in the week and continued the process on Friday. According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Bills have released offensive lineman Greg Pyke and wide receiver Dezmin Lewis.
The Bills signed Pyke as an undrafted free agent following the 2017 NFL draft. Pyke started 13 games at right tackle for Georgia in 2016, but found himself buried on Buffalo’s depth chart.
Dezmin Lewis was the Bills’ seventh round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. He had the size you looked for in a wide receiver, but failed to make any impact with the Bills. Lewis was a member of the Bills’ practice squad for the majority of the 2015 and 2016 season. He appeared in two career games with the Bills, but never recorded any receptions. Despite Buffalo having a wide open wide receiver competition, Lewis struggled to stand out on the field this offseason.
