Safety Bacarri Rambo was among six players released by the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, the first set of moves in advance of reducing their roster to 53 by Saturday's NFL deadline.
Rambo had two stints with the Bills. He joined them as a free agent in 2014 and remained with them through 2015, during which he helped them beat the New York Jets by forcing two fumbles (one of which was returned for a touchdown) and recovering one himself. Rambo spent part of the 2016 season with the Miami Dolphins, and rejoined the Bills last July.
Also cut Tuesday were guard Karim Barton, defensive end Jake Metz, running back Cedric O'Neal, cornerback Jumal Rolle, and wide receiver Rashad Ross.
That leaves the Bills with 83 players on their roster. With offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson and wide receiver Walt Powell facing suspensions at the start of the season, they need to make 28 more cuts to get to 53.
