The Buffalo Bills have released fullback Jerome Felton. He reportedly lost his job to undrafted free agent Glenn Gronkowski.
Gronkowski is the younger brother of New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski. By releasing Felton, the Bills will receive $1.65 million in cap funds.

In the 2015 off-season, he signed a four-year, $9.2 million deal with the Bills. He had one carry for two yards and a reception for 12 yards on the season.
He was the lead blocker for LeSean McCoy, Karlos Williams and the other Bills backs last season.
Prior to signing with the Bills, he spent three-years with the Minnesota Vikings. He spent the 2011 season with the Indianapolis Colts and the first three-years of his career with the Detroit Lions.
During the 2012 season, he was a Pro Bowler as Adrian Peterson’s blocker.
Felton is one of several players, who were released by the Bills today. Veteran linebacker Manny Lawson was also cut with National Football League experience.
The team also cut tackle Chris Martin and running back James Wilder Jr., who had no prior NFL experience.
