Bills Releasing WR Leonard Hankerson

Rand Getlin of NFL Media reports that the Bills are releasing WR Leonard Hankerson on Monday.

Hankerson, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Redskins back in 2011. He signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Falcons back in March of last year, but was later waived and claimed off of waivers by the Patriots.

The Patriots cut him loose after a few weeks and he was once again claimed off of waivers, this time by the Bills. Hankerson was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent when the Bills re-signed him to a one-year, $840,000 contract back in March.

According to, releasing Hankerson will free up $680,000 in available cap space while creating no dead money.

In 2015, Hankerson appeared in 10 games and recorded 26 receptions for 327 yards receiving and three touchdowns for the Falcons.
