As of 4:00 PM EST today, all 32 NFL clubs were required to cut their Active Rosters down from 90 players to 75. In order to meet that deadline, the Bills made a handful of roster moves, which included a trade to acquire LB Lerentee McCray from the Green Bay Packers for an undisclosed draft pick. The trade increased the required amount of roster moves the Bills had to make today from 15 to 16.

Among those cut were LB David Hawthorne, LB Eric Striker, LS Reid Ferguson, C Robert Kugler, WR Greg Little, TE Jimmy Mundine, DT Alameda Ta’amu, DT Justin Zimmer, and QB Austin Trainor.
Additionally, three players were designated as waived/injured: CB Jonathan Dowling, TE Chris Gragg, and T Justin Renfrow. LB Reggie Ragland and WR Kolby Listenbee were placed on the Injured Reserved list as well.
WR Marcus Easley and 2016 first-round pick Shaq Lawson were also put on the PUP list, which means they are not eligible to play for the first six weeks of the season.
All teams must cut their Active rosters down to 53 by Saturday at 4:00 EST.
