Bills Release George Wilson and Nick Barnett

The Buffalo Bills announced the release today of S George Wilson and LB Nick Barnett. Though the Bills have around $15 million in cap room, deficiencies in the roster and the impending free agency of star Safety Jairus Byrd have put them in a position where they need more space to improve on the disappointing results of last season.

Barnett represented the second highest cap savings possible for the team, behind only that of Chris Kelsay. His release frees up $3.5 million in both cash and cap space. Wilson, who earned an escalator to push his base salary to $2.9 million, will save the team $2.925 million in both cash and cap room.
