Buffalo Bills Release a Fan-Favorite Player
The start of unrestricted free agency begins one week from Wednesday and to say the NFL off-season has already been entertaining, would be an understatement.
Russell Wilson was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos, Aaron Rodgers re-signed to a 4-year deal in Green Bay for the most guaranteed money ever, and the Indianapolis Colts traded Carson Wentz to the Washington Commandeers. That was all in the past 48 hours.
The Bills have made moves of their own already. They released linebacker A.J. Klein on Tuesday and on Wednesday afternoon, another impact player was released.
According to Jon Feliciano, he has been released by the Buffalo Bills.
Matt Parrino of Syracuse dot come was the first to report the releasing of Feliciano.
Feliciano came to the Bills as an unrestricted free agent in 2019 after being drafted in the 4th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.
Feliciano signed a new contract last off-season and his release means the Bills save $3.3 million against the salary cap.
This move isn't a surprise. Feliciano lost his starting job at guard during last season and would be behind restricted free agent Ryan Bates if he were to be back to the team.
The Bills need all the cap relief they can get and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Star Lotulelei and/or Cole Beasley get released or traded before March 16th.
Feliciano was a fan favorite, so it will be sad for Bills fans to see him go.
