The Buffalo Bills announced on Monday the releases of linebacker Nick Barnett and strong safety George Wilson.

Barnett, who came over as a free agent from Green Bay in 2011, was Buffalo's leading tackler the past two seasons.

Wilson was a former wide recever who became a safety and special teams player, eventually landing the starting strong safety role in 2008 and being named a defensive captain. He was the Bills second-leading tackler in 2012 behind Barnett.
