The Buffalo Bills have finished the purge of big-money free agent offensive lineman signed during the 2007 offseason.
Previously cut was Derrick Dockery, after a possible trade to the Lions fell through.
Now, Jason La Canfora of NFLN reports that the Bills have cut Langston Walker, the presumed replacement for Jason Peters at left tackle.
Per La Canfora, the Bills tried to trade Walker before cutting him.
It’s also possible that the Bills asked Walker to reduce his $3 million base salary, which would have become guaranteed as of Saturday, if he hadn’t been released.
Walker started every game in 2007 and 2008 for the Bills. He becomes an unrestricted free agent.
Taking his spot in the starting lineup will be Demetrius Bell, a seventh-round pick in 2008 and the estranged son of former NBA star Karl Malone.
UPDATE: The Bills have announced the release of Walker. Tackle Kirk Chambers has been signed in his place.
