He wasnt to bad for the bills but I like the move it frees up 3.5 million. Lets see a few more moves that would put them in a better position

I am happy with both of these moves.

But now re-signing Bryd becomes a must!

Will miss George, two years ago he was such a dynamic playmaker for us. This year he just fell apart, it was painful to watch.

Always gave his all and was a GREAT community presence. One of the good ones in the league for sure, wish his body could have held up.

Barnett it was time, he just has nothing left.

But it was time to move on. Hopefully this means we can keep both Byrd and Levitre. AND that we kick Aaron Williams inside.

This sums up my thoughts as well. Wilson was a model professional and he was a great bill but he really went down hill last year. Hopefully this gives us the money to resign our key players and make a couple good moves in FA.;

I will miss Wilson, and both are good guys. The moves are obviously not surprising though. Best of luck to both players.

Barnett and Wilson should have zero problems finding starting gigs next season imo

I have a feeling Laron Landry will be one guy they will look at.
