Bills keep Thigpen, cut all five bubble WRs

By Tim Graham and Mark Gaughan

The Buffalo Bills will keep both Tyler Thigpen and Tarvaris Jackson as backup quarterbacks and have released five wide receivers, a team source has informed The Buffalo News.

The Bills have kept the five receivers everybody knew they would: Stevie Johnson, David Nelson, Donald Jones, T.J. Graham and Brad Smith (also a quarterback).

Gone are all the rest: Kamar Aiken, Marcus Easley, Derek Hagan, Ruvell Martin and Naaman Roosevelt.

The Bills are keeping H-back Dorin Dickerson, the source said.

The Bills kept six receivers, including Smith, to open last season.
