Bills Release Five Players Including K Dan Carpenter

The Buffalo Bills announced the release of five players on Monday including CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, K Dan Carpenter, LS Garrison Sanborn, TE Gerald Christian and S Phillip Thomas.

  • Ian Rapoport reports that the Bills attempted to trade Robey-Coleman before waiving him today.

According to OverTheCap.com, these five moves will free up $6.08 million of available cap space for the Bills while creating $1,108,334 in dead money.

Carpenter, 31, was entering the final year of his four-year, $9.95 million contract and set to make a base salary of $2.125 million for the 2017 season.

In 2016, Carpenter appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and converted 19 of 25 field goal attempts (76 percent) to go along with 40 of 45 extra point tries (88.9 percent).

Robey-Coleman, 25, wound up signing on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of USC back in 2013. He managed to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season and received a two-year extension in 2015.

Last year, Robey-Coleman appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and recorded 35 tackles, two interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, a forced fumble, a recovery returned for a touchdown and six pass defenses.
