Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Two weeks ago, Byrd posted a picture of him and mentor Aeneas Williams, the former star NFL defensive back. The caption under the photo said it was taken after a workout.
In other news, the Bills released tight end Mickey Shuler and offensive lineman Chris Scott.
The Bills claimed Shuler off waivers in May after he was released by the Oakland Raiders. He had also split time with Minnesota, Miami and Cincinnati since being selected by the Vikings in the seventh round of the 2010 draft.
The Bills signed Scott off of Tennessee’s practice squad in December. He was initially selected by Pittsburgh in the fifth round of the 2010 draft.
Whaley has no immediate intention to fill the spots on his roster. He said the openings leave room to add players without having to make cuts.
