The Buffalo Bills have decided enough is enough and have released veteran running back Tashard Choice.
The Bills announced the decision on Wednesday and said on their official website: "The Buffalo Bills have the fourth-ranked run game in the NFL, but with four games left in the season the club may be looking to give younger players an opportunity. Buffalo released veteran reserve running back Tashard Choice Wednesday."
The 29-year-old signed with the Bills in the 2011 season, but was used as back-up to first choice pair Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.
Chase was a fourth round pick with the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, and was picked up off waivers by the Bills three years later. He set career highs as a rookie, rushing 92 times for 472 yards.
The move will likely afford rookie Ronnie Wingo the chance to step up into the reserve roll vacated by Choice.
The Bills will hope that giving the young running back the chance to feature more regularly will allow him to flourish and build on his obvious potential.
The Missouri native is 6-3 and 231 pounds, and will certainly add a bit of bulk to head coach Doug Marrone's offensive backfield.
