Bills send wideout Elliott on his way, also cut a tackle


The Buffalo Bills made a pair of minor roster moves Tuesday.

After announcing the release of tackle Edawn Coughman in the morning, the team let go of wide receiver Kevin Elliott later in the day.

Elliott had been on the Bills' roster since the end of 2012 but spent all of 2013 on Injured Reserve. He entered 2014 camp with some potential but ultimately couldn't claw his way through a deep receiver depth chart that still houses 11 wideouts on the heels of his release.

The 25-year-old undrafted Florida A&M product should get a look from another team as the season approaches.

Coughman, meanwhile, was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Bills at the end of last year after joining the practice squad just before the 2013 season started.
