Kerley was released Saturday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Analysis: This is a bit of a strange move for a team with such a questionable and unproven group of wide receivers, with the veteran Kerley earning the No. 3 slot job with a decent summer. The youth movement in Buffalo continues, as the team will use a now healthy Ray-Ray McCloud as its fifth wideout for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Kerley may not have that tough a time finding employment elsewhere.
Kerley caught two of four targets for just seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.
Analysis: Kerley, the team's No. 3 wideout who works primarily out of the slot, saw action on 69 percent of the offensive snaps, far more than No. 4 option Robert Foster (25 percent) and No. 5 option Andre Holmes (17 percent). That said, Kerley isn't much of a red-zone threat and is at best the fifth option in a stinky offense, leaving his expected production on the low side each week.
Kerley caught his only target for 18 yards during Sunday's preseason loss to the Bengals.
Analysis: Kerley is almost certain to make the team given the Bills don't have many other viable slot options, plus the veteran has good punt-return skills. He projects to begin the season in that No. 3 slot role, which should keep him on the field in many of the team's packages. Kelvin Benjamin and perhaps even Zay Jones look like better fantasy options for now, however.
