Bills release Tashard Choice

Bills running back C.J, Spiller said last week that he thought he was getting back to his old self and then backed that up by running for 149 yards in a loss to the Falcons.

That seems to have made the Bills feel okay with having fewer veteran options behind him on the roster. The team announced Wednesday that running back Tashard Choice has been released.

Choice had 35 carries for 126 yards in 12 games this season and has played in 30 games for the Bills over the past three seasons as a reserve in the backfield. The 2008 Cowboys fourth-round pick has also played for the Redskins during his NFL career.

The team hasn’t announced an addition to the roster, but it probably won’t be a running back. The team already has Ronnie Wingo on the active roster behind Spiller and Fred Jackson, which is likely enough depth at that spot if everyone is healthy enough to play the rest of the way.

    Colts sign Choice, cut Richardson and give Buffalo the rest of their draft picks for the next 10 years.

    Bumbling and stumbling Bills.

    I don’t understand this move, unless they are trying to do a favor to someone. I guess we will see where he goes. Choice isn’t great but he is good depth and let’s face it, between Jackson and Spiller, being health for 1 week is unussual not the norm. It won’t be long until one of them is banged up again. Maybe next week.

    It is a weird time to get rid of him, unless Marone sees something in Wingo that others don’t.

    Maybe he can play QB for Green Bay

    The reason the let him go now is because they are essentially out of the playoffs now, so they want to get a look at a younger running back in a real game.

    They are going to activate Meeks from injured reserve designated to return

    Hey marvsleezy who said comments have to make sense? I can see the boys bringing him back with Dunbar out.

    i guess they like frank the tank more….choice was reliable when cj or fred were hurt…..but its a bit crowded in the backfield in buffalo….they need TEs!!!!

    The Cowboys won’t sign Choice; they just signed a Fullback yesterday.
