---The Bills have officially announced the release of safety Jon Corto.
The Orchard Park native spent last season on injured reserve and has been with the team since 2007.
He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2007 and was on the active roster from 2008-10, primarily as a special teams contributor. The Bills had to release him once he passed his physical since he was on the waived/injured list last season. A source told The News that several teams have interest in Corto.
Corto spent the whole season recovering from his shoulder injury but he is healthy now.
"I am ready to play and I am excited about the opportunity to continue my career," Corto told The News. "Right now I am in Miami at Bomeritos Sports Performance facility working out very hard for my next opportunity."
NFL teams need big safeties in their nickel coverage. Hopefully Corto can find a niche there and get into a training camp.
