Bills releasing RB Nyheim Hines

The Buffalo Bills are releasing running back Nyheim Hines according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Hines missed the 2023 season after suffering a torn ACL in a jet ski accident last July.  Schefter says he is expected to be healthy in time for training camp this summer. That positive health note could help his market to a degree, but the missed campaign will still no doubt hinder his ability to land a lucrative agreement with a new team once free agency begins.

This move will create $4.66MM in cap savings while creating only $500K in dead money. It will therefore help the cap-strapped Bills in their effort to achieve compliance. Buffalo entered today in the worst financial shape in the league, on track to check in roughly $41MM over the cap ceiling. One year remained on Hines’ contract, but he will now hit the open market early.
