PITTSFORD, N.Y. – The Buffalo Bills have released tight end Mickey Shuler a day before the team opens training camp.
The Bills announced the move Saturday morning, as players were scheduled to take physicals at camp in suburban Rochester. The first practice is set for Sunday evening.
Buffalo claimed Shuler off waivers in May, after he was released by the Oakland Raiders.
Listed at 6-foot-4 and 247 pounds, Shuler was selected by Minnesota in the seventh round of the 2010 draft out of Penn State. He split his rookie season with Minnesota and Miami, where he had two catches for 44 yards in six games.
He split the 2011 season between Cincinnati, Minnesota and Miami. Shuler spent the final 11 weeks of last season on the Raiders' practice squad.
