Captain Munnerlyn, Tyree Jackson among Bills’ cuts

A few recognizable names are among the players getting cut by the Bills today.

Buffalo is letting go of cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, quarterback Tyree Jackson and receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, according to NFL Media.

Munnerlyn signed with the Bills this offseason and was considered a favorite of Bills head coach Sean McDermott, who had previously coached him in Carolina. But the Bills may have decided to go younger than the 31-year-old Munnerlyn.

Jackson is a good athlete whose potential garnered some attention after a strong Senior Bowl showing, but he’s not a polished enough passer to be ready to play as a rookie, and the Bills have apparently decided to go with only two quarterbacks, Josh Allen and Matt Barkley.

McCloud played for the Bills as a sixth-round pick out of Clemson and looked good in the preseason, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him catch on somewhere.

  1. No problem with those cuts. Munnerlyn was an NFL starting caliber player, McCloud might be one at some point on a thin roster, and Jackson doesn’t look like he will ever be.

  2. Jackson has the athletic profile that suggests he could be an _amazing_ tight end… but I wonder if he can catch and block… or even is willing to try.

  3. Munnerlyn should have taken a pay cut and stuck with the Vikings. He still would have been there if he wasn’t so greedy!
