The changes continue to the Bills’ QB depth chart.
Second-year quarterback Jeff Tuel, who competed for the top backup job this summer, was among 10 players released by the Bills on Saturday, the club announced.
Tuel, who started one game as a rookie, is subject to waivers. He is also eligible for the practice squad.
Tuel’s departure comes one day after the team reached a deal with Kyle Orton, who will back up EJ Manuel. Orton and Manuel are the only quarterbacks on the roster.
The Bills also parted ways Saturday with wide receiver T.J. Graham, center Doug Legursky, offensive guard Antoine McClain, safety Deon Broomfield, linebacker Jimmy Gaines, wide receiver Caleb Holley, defensive end Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, defensive end Bryan Johnson and safety Kenny Ladler.
However, on a day in which cuts headline transactions around the league, the Bills also made a signing, announcing the addition of punter Colton Schmidt. The Bills released punter Brian Moorman on Friday.
