ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (June 9, 2006) -- The Buffalo Bills released starting left guard Bennie Anderson.
Anderson, who started 15 of 16 games last season, had two years left on his contract.
Buffalo signed him as a free agent after he spent time as a starting right guard for the Baltimore Ravens.
The Bills were unhappy with the five-year NFL veteran's play last season and attempted to replace him midway through the season with tackle Mike Williams before Williams sustained a season-ending back injury.
Anderson became expendable after the Bills signed Tutan Reyes this offseason, and with the emergence of Duke Preston.
The Bills also waived linebacker Greg Carothers and undrafted rookie free agent defensive end Matthew Rice.
