UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--CB Reggie Corner has fallen down the depth chart and will hit the market.

--LB Andra Davis, 33, has had a fine a 10-year career but the Bills found their future starting middle linebacker in rookie Kelvin Sheppard. Davis will retire if he doesn't hook on somewhere.

--PK Dave Rayner won't return. The team has re-signed starter Rian Lindell.

--LB Reggie Torbor has spent parts of the past two years on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. He's a sound backup when healthy but he's not a priority for the Bills.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (not tendered as ERFA)

--PK Brandon Coutu (not tendered offers) played in a season-ending loss against New England, converting three extra points. With veteran Rian Lindell back in the fold, Coutu will likely be brought back as the extra leg in training camp.

--RB Bruce Hall (not tendered as ERFA) spent the entire year on injured reserve. Will return and challenge for a backup job.
