Bills re-sign Ryan Neufeld; cut Pierson Prioleau

Posted Mar 14, 2005

The Buffalo Bills have re-signed TE Ryan Neufeld and cut S Pierson Prioleau.

Ryan Neufeld started five games last year after Mark Campbell and Tim Euhus got hurt. He finished the season with six receptions and 61 yards. Neufeld joined the Bills in 2003 as a street free agent. While not much of a pass receiving threat Neufeld has shown to be a strong special teamer in his time in Buffalo.

Meanwhile former starting safety Pierson Prioleau was released. Prioleau joined the Bills in 2001 after spending his first two season with the 49ers. Prioleau played well in his 6 game tryout with the team and became the Bills' starting FS in 2001. However he soon saw his playing time dwindle when the Bills signed Izell Reese who eventually surpassed him on the depth chart. Reese himself was eventually surpassed by Rashad Baker and Troy Vincent late last season.

Prioleau's release is believed to free up close to $1.24 million against the Bills salary cap. That free money might be used to sign UFA OG Rick DeMulling who is believed to be making a decision soon to whether to sign with the Bills or Detroit Lions.
