This Monday afternoon the Buffalo Bills announced they are releasing a veteran player. The funny thing is he's just now coming off a suspension.
The Bills are releasing veteran linebacker Andre Smith Jr. this Monday.
"The #Bills are releasing LB Andre Smith, source said. He is coming off a suspension that ends today," said Ian Rapoport.
Smith, 25, just got off a suspension. He missed the team's first six games for violating the League's performance-enhancing substance policy.
"The Buffalo Bills will be without linebacker Andre Smith for the first six games of the 2022 season, as the 25-year-old has been suspended for performance-enhancing substance usage, per NFL Media. Smith just re-upped with the Bills in March on a two-year deal worth up to $3 million," CBS Sports reported in the summer.
It's likely that Andre Smith had known for a while now that the Bills would be releasing him the moment he came off his suspension.
Buffalo, meanwhile, is coming off a big win over Kansas City.
