The Buffalo Bills announced the release of five players on Saturday, bringing their roster to 50 players in advance of Saturday's 6 p.m. ET deadline to be at the 53-player limit.
The departure of Lewis comes as the biggest surprise, as he had the inside track to the Bills' third quarterback job following the release of quarterback Matt Leinart on Friday.
With just 50 players on their roster, it's safe to assume that the Bills placed at least one waiver claim on players waived Friday, or are planning on claiming players waived Saturday.
