I only say that there is a distinct possibility that we only carry five wide receivers because Beane has mentioned the possibility more than once. I also think there is a good possibility that they carry four RBs, and four TEs, which increases that likelihood. Another indicator that I've seen is that they have been giving Roberts so much time in at WR, and giving him so many routes. And, if we only carry five, the obvious choices would be Brown, Jones, Beasley, Foster, and Roberts. 

 

I would say there was a zero chance of carrying both McKensie, and McCloud.

Seemed to me there were a lot of reports of running backs split wide, especially early in camp. I could see a lot of running the ball this year so it wouldn't suprise me if they kept an extra rb vs a wr.

I don't see McCoy making it thru this most likely final season. If Wade has a couple more big plays maybe they expand their rb group? I've said for awhile that Josh needs 1 more year of development so seeing an emphasis on the running game is expected.

I see a lot of names that wouldn't be a real surprise in this thread.

 

I'll go out on a limb and say that there will be NO surprise cuts. But there might be some surprise trades.

 

Maybe Long or Feliciano get traded once Mitch is back to full strength. Maybe Foster. Maybe McCoy.

Stephen Hauschka - That would be a surprise

 

Shaq Lawson - He'd be traded, not cut

 

Tyree Jackson - Not a surprise

I would be surprised to see Zay Jones cut, however I would not be surprised to see him dealt.

Led the team in special teams snaps for two straight years and knows the defense and we are already thin at LB

i think they like stanford better, i could be wrong. 

 

when are the first round of cuts due?...or do they now just have to be at the 53 by a certain date?

There is no 'first round' anymore. The roster must be down to 53 after the 4th preseason game. They got rid of the 'cut to 75' or whatever it was a couple years ago. I suspect you'll start to see the roster size begin to slowly dwindle after Friday's game.

 

EDIT: 

 

Looks like August 31st at 4:00pm

My surprise cut is Zay Jones.  I've seen enough so I'm saying when.  The drop on the goal line is huge.  He just can't make the big play when needed.  I put McKittrick ahead of him RIGHT NOW.  All McKittrick does is make plays every time he gets the ball.  Others list McKittrick as the surprise cut.  I just hope they're wrong, because he's a better football player than Zay Jones ever was.

 

I'll also add Bodork to my cut list.  Carter looked just as good to me, and he hasn't tried to make a fake FG where none existed.  Bodork should have been gone after that.

Once Kroft and Knox come back healthy, SOMETHING's got to give at the tight end position.

They're keeping Lee Smith and Tyler Kroft, based on what they paid them. They're keeping Knox, based on how high he was drafted. I doubt they risk putting Sweeney on the practice squad, with how well he has been playing in training camp.

Smith
Knox
Kroft
Sweeney
Croom
 
Are they really gonna keep 5 TEs? If not, Croom could be the odd man out. ESPECIALLY since some of the undrafted youngsters like Nate Becker have been showing really well.

I think you'll see Kroft on PUP to begin the year and the Bills will carry 4 TE's on the active 53, as they did last year (Smith, Knox, Croom, Sweeny). This will give them a chance to hold onto a young guy and not expose him to the first round of practice squad signings. Once they activate Kroft, they can then decide who the cut will be. This delay affords them a while longer to assess the back end depth at the position.

Someone else with a similar type player, looking to see if they can jump start a slow and disappointing career..That is the only way I can see it. Zay is an unreliable receiver who drops way too many passes. He needs to go one way or the other before he costs the Bills a game or two with an untimely drop.

I believe Croom is the TE who gets the axe.  Next would be Lee Smith

He seems like a serial drive killer. I never liked him, and as more talent arrives his days will be numbered.
