[BN] Blitz newsletter: Will the free agent WR crop improve after June 1?

The Bills' wide receiving corps needs help, and the class of remaining free agents isn't that attractive.

With that in mind, Jay Skurski was asked in this week's Bills mailbag if there's a chance more wide receivers will be cut after June 1, since teams can spread out the dead cap hit of players cut after that date.

Skurski noted that teams can designate two players per year as post-June 1 cuts, parting with the player earlier in the offseason but essentially not having the paperwork go through until June.

"That means we shouldn’t expect a wave of new free agents to flood the market in a couple of weeks," Skurski wrote. "Most of the receivers who were potential cap casualties already have been released. That list includes Green Bay’s Jordy Nelson (who has since signed with the Raiders), Dallas’ Dez Bryant, Baltimore’s Jeremy Maclin and Tennessee’s Eric Decker."

Siran Neal is Bills' new jack-of-all-trades on defense: Bills coach Sean McDermott loves versatility. Enter fifth-round pick Siran Neal, who played safety, cornerback and linebacker in college. "If you learn every position, you never have to get off the field," Neal said.
