The Bills released Brandon Kaufman on Friday just a day before rookie mini-camp was about to start. I myself am a pretty surprised by the move and was not all expecting it to happen, at least not this soon. I mean sure our WR corps is absolutely loaded to the brim but last I knew Kaufman packed on something like 30 lbs and was going to give a shot at playing tight end. Granted its kind of unbelievable someone can put on 30 lbs of lean muscle in just one off-season so the question begs to asked, was he was on steroids or did he roll into 1 Bills drive a gross flabby mess? I honestly thought the whole reason they did not address tight end in the draft was because of Kaufman, with Tony Moeaki signed last year I figured they would work those two in this season and they felt it was not necessary to address the position. Now that Kaufman is released less than a week after the draft and they didn’t even sign an undrafted free agent TE it makes me wonder what the hell they are doing. The tight end position in Buffalo without a doubt needs to be improved and not only did we not even consider addressing it, we are releasing potential players for the position before anyone even gets a chance to step onto a practice field. Don’t tell me it was because Sammy Watkins took his number either, numbers are important to some people so it’s entirely possible this was over them giving his number away to their new 4th overall draft pick. I really liked Brandon Kaufman’s play, we only really got to see what he can do in last years pre-season but what I saw I really liked. He is a good football player and I hope to see him land a starting role with a team before the season is over. I’m not sure what the Bills reason was for releasing him so quickly but I sure hope its a good one because they just let go of a player that everyone I have ever talked to really liked. That says something too, the people I have talked to didn’t like him because of his personality or outstanding character, they liked him because he was a good football player. Naturally when a football team decides to get rid of a player you are going to have a handful of people shouting in disbelief, so I am just going to have to trust that my team did the right here. That doesn’t mean I have to like it though, and I do not at all like it one bit. What do you guys think? Did I value Kaufman too high or was he actually a good football player?
