Damn, I was optimistic about him.  But he was probably the odd man out.  Did great things that one year

Feel bad for E.J. Very good player, just can't stay healthy. Hope things work out for him in the future.

It was nice to get EJ back as a depth guy rather than a starter but even then he got hurt before the season started! Ah well.

Odd move. Why not just keep him on IR?  He must be healthy enough to come back sooner and wanted a chance to sign elsewhere.  

 

That's the problem with missing time. Other guys step up in your place. They must feel confident now with Kevin Johnson as the third outside corner and it looked like E.J. was headed for the backup slot role and since they signed Captain and have been trying to groom Neal for that role too, they must feel like they are set now without E.J.

Gives him a chance to get healthy and catch on with somebody if the chance arises.

Life goes on

Yup, and perhaps if he and his agent feel that the Bills releasing him helps his chances catching on to another team, then maybe this wont be the last time we see EJ in a Bills uniform.

Another team?  He has already played on 4 different rosters (2 different Bills rosters) and has been on IR on 3 of them--including now in Buffalo before taking a snap since they just signed him.

1.  He had a groin, not right to just keep him on IR the whole year when he would expect to get healthy.  He deserves a chance to play on a team that may want him.

2.  Money, he wont get his whole salary so there is some cap savings.  In reality, this was probably the strategy they decided to pursue after he was injured.  You cant just waive an injured guy even if you decide you dont want him on your 53.  This is how it is done.

It's the reality of a system driven by relentless competition.  There's always someone trying to take your job, and once you let him the field in your place, your job is at risk.

By week 5 a half dozen teams will be looking for corners.  He will be back somewhere.

That's too bad.   Perfect fit for this scheme and the Bills were a better team when he was on the field.  Maybe next year.

Well, at least we know that he doesn’t know the meaning of the word quit.

Dreams can be a tough thing to give up.
