The Buffalo Bills have cut safety Bacarri Rambo and five other players, according to Chris Brown of the team’s official team website. The other players were offensive lineman Karim Barton, defensive end Jake Metz, running back Cedric O’Neal, cornerback Jumal Rolle and return man Rashad Ross.
However, Rambo is certainly the biggest name on the slate.
The Bills signed the 27-year-old as a free agent last month. This was Rambo’s second stint in Buffalo, as he also played for the Bills in 2014-15 and 2015-16. The Donalsonville, Georgia native spent the 2016-17 campaign with the Miami Dolphins, playing in nine games and making five starts. Over that time, he registered 39 total tackles and one interception. Rambo, who played his collegiate football at the University of Georgia, was originally selected by the Washington Redskins in the sixth round (191st pick overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.
He played in 11 games and made three starts during his rookie campaign, finishing with 42 total tackles and one sack. Then, at the beginning of the 2014-15 season, the Redskins waived Rambo, who was signed by the Bills two months later. Overall, Rambo played in only six games during the 2014-15 campaign, recording four total tackles but still managing to snare two interceptions.
The following year, Rambo made 15 appearances for Buffalo, starting eight contests. He went on to enjoy his most productive season to date, posting 58 total tackles, one sack, one interception, two forced fumbles and six pass defenses.
The Bills have gone winless over their first three preseason games. They will take on the Detroit Lions in the team’s exhibition finale on Thursday.
