Veteran defensive tackle Dwan Edwards and rookie linebacker Tank Carder are among the players cut by the Buffalo Bills on Friday.
Two people familiar with the moves confirmed that Edwards and Carder had been released, and spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team has not made an announcement.
Carder was coming off an accomplished college career at TCU, where he was a two-time Mountain West Conference defensive player of the year. He also earned defensive MVP honors in the 2011 Rose Bowl after helping secure TCU’s 21-19 win over Wisconsin by breaking up a potential game-tying two-point conversion with 2 minutes left.
Carder suggested he had been cut by posting a note on his Twitter account by saying he appreciated everything the Bills had done for him thus far.
“Wasn’t the right fit,” he added. “Best of luck to the team and the organization.”
