Bills waive Shawn Nelson

Ray Lewis, Shawn Nelson AP

The Bills could be a surprise team in 2011.  Coming as no surprise is the decision to waive tight end Shawn Nelson.

A fourth-round pick in 2009, Nelson started 12 games as a rookie but only one in 2010.  He was limited to five appearances, due to injury.

Per Joe Buscaglia of WGR radio, Nelson showed up for training camp “way heavier” than in past years, and as of last Saturday he hadn’t practiced at all, due to an undisclosed injury.

    yeah, this guy was supposed to be a “steal” in the draft. i heard through the grapevine he showed up woefully out of shape for his first o.t.a. ever since i`d hoped they would get rid of his ass since he showed nothing on the field. lotta talent, no heart. good riddence.

    Bills will not be a surprise team. With all the injuries in the NFL nowadays the solid teams will be teams with depth. The Bills have a decent starting lineup but do not have the depth to be a .500 team. They are looking at a 6 win season.

    Surprise Team. Thanks for the nod PFT.
    7-9 or 9-7… I’m thinking we’ll be sorry we didn’t mail it in to land Andrew Luck.

    Lots of talent, wasn’t one of the player’s that kept in shape during the lockout though.

    Good luck with your future Nelson!

    Go Bills!!!!

    Apparently, Shawn Nelson found all of the weight that Aaron Maybin lost.
