Buffalo Bills' projected roster
By Mike Rodak
Examining the Buffalo Bills' roster:
Anyone have a coin to flip? That's the way this position could go. The Bills will be monitoring the waiver wire closely in the next few days. If better backup options than Tuel or Palmer become available, that's the way they could go.
RUNNING BACKS (4)
No changes here. This group appears set.
No changes here. Still no spot for Evan Rodriguez.
No changes here. Will another injury to Watkins open a spot for T.J. Graham? We'll say no.
TIGHT ENDS (3)
No changes here. This projection leaves off Tony Moeaki, who still hasn't been able to return from a hamstring injury. The Bills could probably bring him back later -- at a reduced cost -- if they desire.
OFFENSIVE LINEMEN (9)
No changes here. Sticking with both Urbik and Legursky for now, although it's possible the Bills only keep one of the two veteran interior men in the long-term. Williams' injury "concerns" Doug Marrone, providing more reason to go nine-deep here.
DEFENSIVE LINEMEN (9)
No changes here. The Bills might not keep all nine of these players in the long-term, but for now, they're worth sticking around.
No changes here. Brown starts for Bradham in Week 1 and this unit gets back to full strength in Week 2.
No changes here. Gilmore and Graham missed the preseason finale with injuries.
No changes here. Searcy looks to have edged out Duke Williams for the competition to start next to Aaron Williams.
No changes here. Marrone is still kicking around the idea of a kickoff specialist, which could give Jordan Gay a chance to stick. They'll be working off a small sample size.
