Breaking down cornerback market for Bills

By Mike Rodak

Much like at quarterback, the Buffalo Bills could be in the market this weekend for another cornerback.

Top cornerback Stephon Gilmore is out 6-to-8 weeks with a wrist injury, which will likely force the Bills to start Justin Rogers across from Leodis McKelvin in Week 1. Ron Brooks will man the slot, while undrafted rookie Nickell Robey rounds out the roster at the position.

Buffalo's roster stands at 50 players as of Saturday evening, giving them three roster spots to fill.

Here is a look at cornerbacks who, with four or more seasons of experience, were released on Friday or Saturday. These players can be signed at any point:

Ron Bartell (Detroit Lions)
Chris Carr (New Orleans Saints)
Kennard Cox (Kansas City Chiefs)
Drayton Florence (Carolina Panthers)
Joselio Hanson (Oakland Raiders; injured)
Elbert Mack (Houston Texans)
William Middleton (San Diego Chargers)
Ryan Mouton (Washington Redskins; injured)
Marcus Trufant (Jacksonville Jaguars)
Antoine Winfield (Seattle Seahawks) -- Retired
