The Buffalo Bills released eight players on Sunday as they begin to pare down their roster ahead of the start of the season on Tuesday,
including DE Shane Ray, who was released with an injury settlement from IR.
Ray, 29, was a Broncos first-round pick in 2015. Denver declined his fifth-year option in 2018, and he completed his four-year, $9.116 million rookie contract.
Ray was signed to a one-year, $1.2 million contract by the Ravens in 2019. He was, however, one of their final preseason roster cuts.
Ray then worked out for many teams, including the Falcons, Colts, Jets, Bears, and Cardinals, but he hasn't played in an NFL game since the 2018 season.
He joined with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts in February 2021 and spent two seasons with the organization.
He signed a one-year agreement with the Bills in May.
Ray appeared in 11 games for the Broncos in 2018, recording 10 tackles, a sack, and one forced fumble.
