Footballguys view: Gray is the guy to perhaps keep around on the practice squad. He's big, athletic and fast. However, the converted college quarterback has had a rough transition to tight end/fullback in the pros.

The Buffalo Bills released FS Deon Broomfield, LB Jimmy Gaines, WR T.J. Graham, WR Caleb Holley, DE Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, DE Bryan Johnson, FS Kenny Ladler, C Doug Legursky and OG Antoine McClain.

Footballguys view: Graham is a speedy wide receiver, but he's failed to make a positive impression as a pro. He's basically a one-route guy (go route) with concentration problems. The Bills could've used a weapon like Graham, but he never developed.

Tialavea and LB Marcus Whitfield Friday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Morris might be able to stick around on the practice squad. He's a good athlete with a strong arm. His mechanics are nearly flawless when the pocket is clean, but his game falls apart under pressure.

Footballguys view: Everyone is waiting for the Honey Badger to come back. After a solid, though injury shortened rookie season, Mathieu would give a boost to this defense.

  Cardinals | Tyrann Mathieu may play Week 1    Mon Aug 25, 04:13 PM

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) will need to play in the final preseason game if he wants the chance to play Week 1.

Footballguys view: Mathieu has been on the road to recovery all offseason long. The Cardinals defense is hurting after losing players to injury and suspension. Getting Mathieu back would be a huge boost for their secondary. Mathieu said he believes there is a good chance that he will be able to play in the preseason game.
