Buffalo Bills release Leodis McKelvin

The salary cap shuffle continues in Buffalo, and no, that isn’t the latest dance craze.

The Bills have released cornerback Leodis McKelvin in order to free up more cap space ahead of the start of NFL free agency. In addition to adding new players to the mix, Buffalo is working on extending quarterback Tyrod Taylor, left tackle Cordy Glenn — who was given the Franchise Tag — and cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

The release of the eight-year veteran gives the Bills another $3.9 million in salary cap space.

McKelvin’s release adds to a list that includes defensive end Mario Williams, guard Kraig Urbik, and running back Boobie Dixon. The Bills now have cleared over $27 million in space with the recent moves that include a restructuring of the contracts of tight end Charles Clay and safety Corey Graham.
