Source: Willie Jefferson being released by Bills

The Buffalo Bills are cutting outside linebacker Willie Jefferson, according to a league source.

He was signed to a reserve-future deal during this offseason, but wasn't regarded as a scheme fit for new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Jefferson is expected to catch on elsewhere.

During the season, he worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jefferson is a 6-foot-5, 241-pounder who was dismissed from the Houston Texans during the regular season for violating team rules along with defensive end Sam Montgomery and running back Cierre Wood
