DAILY REPORT
–The Buffalo Bills today released the following five players: DB Dominique Ellis, WR DeMarco Sampson, CB Jumal Rolle, C Ryan Turnley, WR Da’Rick Rogers.

–The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that the team has signed free agent QB Matt Leinart. Leinart entered the NFL as a first-round (10th overall) draft selection of the Arizona Cardinals in 2006. He has started 18-of-33 games played with stints on the rosters of the Cardinals (2006-09), Houston Texans (2010-11) and Oakland Raiders (2012). The team also announced that it had traded LB Chris White to the Detroit Lions for QB Thaddeus Lewis. Lewis spent the 2011-12 seasons on the Practice Squad and 53-man roster of the Cleveland Browns.

Buffalo vs. Lions: The Buffalo Bills will host the Detroit Lions on Thursday, August 29th at 7:00pm in the 2013 preseason finale. Thursday’s game will be the 33rd preseason meeting between Buffalo and Detroit and the 12th year in a row the two teams will close out their exhibition schedules.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
T.J. Graham, Buffalo Bills wide receiver
On what the team can take away from Saturday’s preseason loss to the Redskins:
“You need these times so that we can go back, regroup and reevaluate things. Even winning teams have bumps in the road and right now we’ve got to figure it out. We are a whole new team and this is the first time we’ve lost together, so now we get to see how guys react to it. As a team, we need to figure it out and come out next week.”
