The Bills released veteran LB Kirk Morrison on Monday. The 30-year-old had not played in a game this season.
Morrison, who had more than 116 tackles in each season from 2005-09 with the Raiders, signed a contract last March to stay with the Bills. In 2011, he appeared in 14 games and made seven tackles, one sack and one pass defensed.
Morrison played in every game from 2005-10, missing only one start. In 2010, he started every game for Jacksonville and had 89 tackles.
The roster spot created by Morrison’s release will presumably be used on an offensive lineman, as the Bills lost C Eric Wood to a knee injury.
