The Bills officially have trimmed their 2019 roster down to 53 players.

In one of the most surprising moves of the day, the team released running back LeSean McCoy.

McCoy ends his career as a Bill with 3,814 yards, 25 touchdowns, 175 receptions, 1,334 yards and five touchdowns.

Former University at Buffalo quarterback Tyree Jackson has been waved. Jackson went 22/47 for 270 yards with one touchdown and one interception in his three preseason appearances.

Ray-Ray McCloud was also waived. Last season, McCloud had five catches for 36 yards in 10 games.

The Bills also released WR Duke Williams. Williams appeared in all four preseason games, with eight receptions for 71 yards and two touchdowns.

Cornerback Lafayette Pitts has also been released.

Cornerback Captian Munnerlyn has also been released. Munnerlyn was brought in during training camp, and had ties to McDermott from his days with Carolina.

Running back Marcus Murphy was also let go. In his two seasons with the Bills, Murphy rushed for 291 yards in 12 appearances. Murphy returned a punt for a 79 yard touchdown in the preseason finale against the Vikings.

Former rugby player turned running back Christian Wade was also cut. Wade captured the attention of fans during the preseason after scoring a touchdown on his first carry in the NFL.

Former University at Buffalo cornerback Cam Lewis was released. Lewis had shown promise and earned high praise from McDermott during the preseason, but was battling a concussion through the second half of the preseason.
