The Bills are busy this afternoon releasing veteran starters.

After dropping linebacker Nick Barnett, they’ve apparently also parted ways with safety George Wilson, according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.

The 31-year-old Wilson was a team captain and the Bills’ union representative, but his release will take them off the hook for his $2.9 million salary.

With Jairus Byrd a pending unrestricted free agent, it leaves a big hole in the middle of the Bills defense.
