Found August 20, 2013 on Queen City Sports:
Last week I thought that three players were on the bubble who the Bills might regret cutting. Of course that was before Buffalo released long time kicker Rian Lindell (which I predicted), and LB Nigel Bradham was cited for marijuana possession. Continued drug busts and off the field issues can get even the best of players assigned to bubble watch but, since this is a first offense, I think Bradham is safe for now. Others may not be so lucky. My three buddle players were WR Marcus Easley, WR DeMarco Sampson and DE Jamie Blatnick. I am holding firm on Easley. He’s had a very good camp and again played well Friday night against the Vikings, catching 3 passes. In my view he should make the team but I suspect he won’t. We are deep at wide receiver, and Easley has not moved past any of the others. Unless we have a major injury I don’t think Marcus can play himself onto the team. The Bills might try to sign him to the practice squad, and that won’t last very long as there are too many team...
