The Bills have released quarterback Matt Cassel, officially ending a quarterback competition that saw Tyrod Taylor named the team’s starter earlier in the week.
Cassel started the first preseason game and was the early favorite over Taylor and E.J. Manuel based on experience.
The Bills, at least for now, are keeping Taylor and Manuel as the only quarterbacks on the active roster. The Bills already paid Cassel a $500,000 roster bonus, but they avoid having to pay Cassel a $4.15 million base salary for 2015.
