Poll: Who should be cut to clear Buffalo Bills salary-cap space?

By Tim Graham

Which Buffalo Bills players would you dump to clear more room under the salary cap for 2013?

Buffalo News reporter Mark Gaughan cast a spotlight on the Bills' salary-cap situation in today's paper and listed the top dozen cap figures for the upcoming season.

Gaughan reported Buffalo's decision to lop linebacker Nick Barnett and safety George Wilson from the roster puts it $20.9 million under the NFL's projected $121 million cap.

Factor in how much the Bills will need to spend on their draft class and to retain players such as safety Jairus Byrd, and the Bills don't have much wiggle room to re-sign left guard Andy Levitre or bring aboard noteworthy free-agent help.

So take a look at the Bills' top 12 cap figures and vote for the one player you'd most want to dump.


2013 draft | 2013 free agency | Brad Smith | C.J. Spiller | David Nelson | Eric Wood | Fred Jackson | George Wilson | Jairus Byrd | Mark Anderson | Nick Barnett | Ryan Fitzpatrick | Stevie Johnson
