Bills players from previous regime continue to dwindle

As the Bills entered the 2018 season, just 12 players remained from the 2016 roster, built by former General Manager Doug Whaley and ex-coach Rex Ryan. Just three players from the years 2010 to 2016 who were "drafted by Whaley" while he was GM or the right-hand man to Buddy Nix were still on the team at the start of 2018 – John Miller, Shaq Lawson and Adolphus Washington.

The 12 has been cut to five following tight end Charles Clay's release Friday.

The five remaining:

  • Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, who just signed a one-year extension.
  • Long-snapper Reid Ferguson, who just signed  a three-year contract.
  • Defensive end Jerry Hughes, who has one season remaining on his contract.
  • Linebacker Shaq Lawson, who has one season remaining with the Bills having to decide whether to pick up his fifth-year option.
  • Running back LeSean McCoy, who has one season remaining on his contract.

The seven who began 2018 with the Bills and are either no longer on the roster or a pending free agent.

  • Tight end Charles Clay, who was released.
  • Offensive lineman Ryan Groy, who is a pending free agent.
  • Offensive lineman John Miller, who is a pending free agent.
  • Offensive lineman Jordan Mills, who is a pending free agent.
  • Defensive tackle Adolphus Washington, who was released in early September and played in four games with the Bengals.
  • Defensive tackle Kyle Williams, who retired after the season.
  • Tight end Logan Thomas, who is a pending restricted free agent.
