The Buffalo Bills Make 5 Cuts Including Kicker Dan Carpenter
The Buffalo Bills announced today that they will be parting ways with 5 players including a few special teamers. The cuts include kicker Dan Carpenter, and long snapper Garrison Sanborn.
There were five cuts total. Corner Back Nickell Robey-Coleman, tight end Gerald Christian and Safety Phillip Thomas were also let go.
Many people saw the Carpenter cut happening after a year of struggles on the field in 2016.
The spot to kick for the extra point was moved back and while many kickers had trouble with it, Carpenter missed 6 of them.
Two of the big surprises in those cuts came from Sanborn, and Robey-Coleman who had both been on the team for a while.
Sanborn was one of the highest tenured players according to The Bills at 8 years, and Robey-Coleman has been here since the 2013 season.
