    could this mean that Stanford Routt will be a Bill soon?

    The Buffalo Bills made a flurry of roster moves Tuesday, placing CB Terrence McGee and RT Erik Pearson injured reserve. The club also released kickoff specialist John Potter and elevated Marcus Easley to the 53-man roster.

    For McGee and Pears it was a trying season. McGee was trying to return from offseason patellar tendon surgery, but his knee never fully recovered to allow him to practice on a day in and day out basis. His knee simply did not have the endurance to get through an entire game either, which is why he had to play a rotational role this season.

    At age 31 and with a lengthy list of injury problems each of the previous three seasons, the future of McGee’s playing career is anything but certain. The veteran cornerback has not played in more than 11 games in any of the last four seasons now. Three of his last four seasons have ended on injured reserve.

    For Pears the struggles weren’t all that different this year. After offseason surgery to repair a groin/hip problem, he started in the first seven games, but was not 100 percent. He missed last week’s game at Houston after seeing a specialist, but was shut down for the season as well.

    The subtraction of McGee and Pears leaves Buffalo with four healthy cornerbacks with Aaron Williams out for a few weeks and just seven offensive linemen on the roster. There figure to be additions to address the depth at both positions.

    Potter released
    Rookie kickoff specialist John Potter was seen as a potential boon to Buffalo’s kickoff coverage team. With a strong leg it was hoped that Potter could force teams into touchbacks and take hits off the coverage unit.

    Potter however, wasn’t as successful as anticipated forcing touchbacks on just 13 of his 26 kickoffs for the Bills. He was inactive for each of the last two games as the team turned to veteran kicker Rian Lindell to handle kickoffs.

    Easley elevated to active roster
    The Bills also announced that the team has promoted WR Marcus Easley to the 53-man roster. Easley’s first two seasons never got off the ground as he was on injured reserve in 2010 and 2011. The former fourth-round pick has been on the team’s practice squad since the beginning of the season.

    Practice squad addition
    Taking Easley’s spot on the practice squad Tuesday was WR Chris Hogan, who was signed by the club. Hogan, 6-1, 220-pound Monmouth (N.J.) product entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with San Francisco in 2011. He spent a portion of 2011 on the Practice Squads of the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins.

    This makes...3 seasons for McGee on IR? This is a shining example of the ineptitude of OBD. This guy should've been cut last decade. In the last five years, he's been injured more than he's been healthy, but the Bills always waste a roster spot on him. Why? Just...why?

    Here's the thing; done the right way--and I emphasize THE RIGHT WAY--it's not a bad move. With McGee and Williams hurt, we need a warm body. Routt is better than anyone we're getting off the couch. I don't want his contract, that's why you let him clear waivers. If that happens, we could essentially give him an 8 week tryout. If it doesn't work out, move on at the end of the season. If we get outbid, move on right now. Not trying to be sarcastic, but if you've got a better option right now off the street, fill me in.

    Sad day because McGee could have helped a lot if he was healthy, especially with Aaron Williams out. On the bright side Ron Brooks playing time could happen more quickly, and finally Marcus Easely!!!!!

    Ironic, this is the guy who thumbed his nose at the Bills to sign in KC. The question is have the Bills put a claim in for him.

    So much for the Potter experiment.....
    They should have left the Moorman/Lindell situation be.

    And I can not wait for the posts about people being angry over Easley being inactive...
