Bills cut two vets on defense
Monday, February 11, 2013
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Bills new coach Doug Marrone began retooling his underperforming defense Monday by releasing two veterans: linebacker Nick Barnett and strong safety George Wilson.
The two players were among the Bills’ most experienced defenders, and finished first and second on the team in tackles last season. And yet, they were also part of a high-priced defense that finished among the NFL’s worst in yards and points allowed.
