Look for this player to resurface

The Bills' cuts to 65 came as no surprise. But there was one player in particular who could do something in the NFL. His name, Kendrick Office, defensive end.

Of the five players the Bills cut today (QB Jack Hawley, WR Rocky Henry, G Josh Lind, FB Josh Roth and DE Kendrick Office), Office was one of the better players. He was quick off the ball and flexible around the corner. With a little more training, he could be an NFL-caliber left end. Office may be picked up by another team, but if not, look for him to be signed to the Bills' practice squad. A Div. II player from West Alabama, he was voted to the Blue-Gray Classic as a senior. Through his four-year collegiate career he had 20.5 sacks and six forced fumbles. Henry had a connection to Fred Graves, the Bills wide receivers coach who was his former coach at Utah. Henry has good hands, but doesn't have the size or speed to excel at receiver. As for Jack Hawley, he was 100 times better than Pete Gonzalez. But Gonzalez is not a good measure because he stunk. When the Bills signed quarterback Travis Brown, who was released by Seattle and who had worked with Mike Sheppard there, that signaled the end of Hawley. Fullback Josh Roth sat out most of camp with a hamstring injury. With the emergence of Phil Crosby as a backup fullback to Larry Centers, Roth was destined to be cut. He was lucky to be with the Bills for as long as he was. Last year he was on the practice squad.
