|Bills release RB Karlos Williams|
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 20, 2:30 pm
|The team cut the second-year pro prior to its second preseason game against the New York Giants at New Era Field. Without Williams, the Bills will rely on Reggie Bush, Mike Gillislee, rookie Jonathan Williams and James Wilder Jr. to provide depth behind starter LeSean McCoy.
FFToday's Take: A four-game suspension and showing up to off-season workouts out of shape isn't going to make a good impression. Williams was very productive last season (9 TDs in eleven games) but the Bills have decided to cut ties leaving an unsettled RB group behind LeSean McCoy. Gillislee should get first crack at meaningful snaps.
|Bills finalizing contract for Reggie Bush|
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 1, 4:10 pm
|Reggie Bush appears to be headed to a new home in Buffalo on a one-year, according to multiple reports. This will be Bush’s fifth team heading into the 11th year of his career since being drafted No. 2 overall by the New Orleans Saints out of USC. With backup Karlos Williams being suspended for the first four weeks of the season, Bush will have a shot at earning some reps behind starter LeSean McCoy in a crowded backfield. At least for those first few games, Bush will be battling backups Mike Gillislee and Jonathan Williams.
FFToday's Take: Bush was limited to five games in his only year with San Francisco before he tore his meniscus on some exposed concrete along the Rams' sideline. The 31-year-old is likely being added as veteran insurance while Karlos Williams serves his four-game suspension. Once that is over, Bush may transition into a full-time punt returner.
|Bills still talking with Reggie Bush|
Source claims deal could still happen sending veteran RB to WNY

|From Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk: "After reports emerged linking running back Reggie Bush to the Bills, Bush tapped the brakes. At some point, however, it looks like he’ll be dialing up Western New York on the GPS."
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, talks between Bush and the Bills continue. The Bills view Bush as a potential option at punt returner and as a replacement/clone of LeSean McCoy, if he needs a break or is injured."
FFToday's Take: the Bills really do need to be ready for the four-game suspension imposed recently on running back Karlos Williams, and whether Bush fits after Williams returns from his looming exile is a secondary issue.
