Merriman released by Bills
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — It’s lights out for Shawne Merriman in Buffalo after the Bills cut the one-time star pass-rusher Monday.
General manager Buddy Nix said Merriman’s health wasn’t an issue and added he made the move now to provide the former Maryland standout a better chance to sign with another team.
The move does allow the Bills to save a portion of the $4 million salary Merriman, a three-time Pro Bowler, was scheduled to make in the final year of his contract.
