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.
