Walker was surprised by Dockery release

Langston Walker knows change happens in the NFL. He just didn’t see the release of Derrick Dockery coming at the start of the free agency period.

“I was pretty surprised by that, but to reiterate it is a business,” said Walker. “Football is a game. The NFL is a business. It’s just what happens.”

The shock was likely due to the fact that Dockery had a long term contract, but it was difficult to justify Dockery’s performance with the size of his contract and a difficult decision was made.

Of course filling that left guard spot is an open ended situation though Kirk Chambers and Demetrius Bell will be given an opportunity to fill it.

It wouldn’t surprise me if the Bills used a 2nd or 3rd round pick on an interior offensive lineman to shore that position up even further. Having Terrell Owens and Lee Evans outside won’t mean a whole lot if Trent Edwards doesn’t have time to throw.
