  Bills | Two Bills released    Fri Sep 2, 11:41 AM

Buffalo Bills FB Jerome Felton and LB Manny Lawson were cut Friday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Lawson is the 'big name' to highlight here. Prior to training camp, he suffered a partially torn pectoral and was just activated off the active/NFI list a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps facing a one-game suspension (although why is still unclear), there should be teams interested in the veteran linebacker.

  Bills | IK Enemkpali has a big chance    Tue Jun 21, 01:08 AM

Buffalo Bills LB IK Enemkpali has worked with the first-team defense in offseason practice and he might push LB Manny Lawson for a starting job.

Footballguys view: Enemkpali is mainly known as the former Jets player who broke Geno Smith's jaw, but he may have a chance to rush the passer often for the Bills in 2016. During the team's recent minicamp, Enemkpali was getting by blockers with inside and outside pass-rush moves.

  Bills | DC believes Manny Lawson is good pass rusher    Thu Mar 14, 02:16 PM

Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said he believes LB Manny Lawson is an underrated pass rusher because he did not rush the passer much with the Cincinnati Bengals. 'I think he brings a guy that has some explosive ability. He's a tall, rangy guy, a set the edge type defender,' said Pettine. 'And even though we're not going to be true 3-4 or 4-3 as far as we're doing it. In our multiple fronts that we run we do need some bigger edge players. So I do think he certainly fits that bill for us. I think he's an underrated pass rusher.'
