Bills Plan to Cut Ties With Veteran RB in $4.6 Million Move: Insider

An insider says the Buffalo Bills will release veteran running back Nyheim Hines to save $4.6 million.  

On March 3, ESPN's Adam Schefter claimed that the Bills would release Hines later that week.   

After tearing his ACL in a summer boating accident, the running back and kick return specialist missed the entire 2023 season. He wanted to return.  

The Bills were more than $40 million over the salary cap heading into the new league year, but the expected release of Hines and Connor McGovern's contract renegotiation freed up over $3.7 million.  

After his July accident, which ended his season, Hines' Bills future seemed unknown. After that, Hines' agent posted a mysterious message on X calling for salary negotiations with the organization.  

“Adversity reveals character,” wrote agent Ed Wasielewski. People can choose to treat others with respect and dignity. Injury to an employee shows how a corporation treats its employees.  

I shall keep believing that people will do the right thing when their own suffer.” Hines said later in the season he wanted to return to the Bills in 2024.  

A season-finale win over the New England Patriots saw Hines return two kickoffs for touchdowns, one of his best performances of 2022. The emotional contest followed Damar Hamlin's on-field collapse days earlier.
