The Bills announced the release of 19 players, including former second-round WR James Hardy.
Hardy was picked in Round Two of the 2008 draft but was plagued by injuries and failed to make a significant impact. The team also released former Patriots second-rounder Chad Jackson, opting to go with a younger WR corps.
Undrafted rookies David Nelson and Donald Jones made the final roster.
The Bills also released: C Sean Allen, RB Andre Anderson, RB Joique Bell, QB Levi Brown, OT Kirk Chambers, DE Rashaad Duncan, FB Rodney Ferguson, C Christian Gaddis, TE Andrew George, OG Nick Hennessey, DB Ellis Lankster, OG Andre Ramsey, WR Naaman Roosevelt, DB Lydell Sargeant, RB Chad Simpson, OT Jason Watkins and LB Donovan Woods.
The team also waived/injured TE Derek Schouman, who hurt his knee two weeks ago, and placed S Jon Corto on the reserve PUP list.
