Bills cut former free-agent prize DockeryBy John Clayton
Offensive guard Derrick Dockery, who was signed to a seven-year, $49 million deal two years ago by the Buffalo Bills, was informed Thursday he is being released.
Dockery was one of the key prizes in the free-agent class of 2007. His agent, Todd France, was able to get him a Steve Hutchinson-type package to leave the Washington Redskins for Buffalo. His seven-year, $49 million deal was the highest salary for a guard at the time.
During the first two years of the contract, Dockery was guaranteed $18.5 million. A change in offensive line coaches may have affected his status.
Dockery, who will go on the waiver wire at 4 p.m. ET, could go to the top of the list of guards in free agency.
The 28-year-old Dockery, who played in college at Texas, entered the league as the third-round pick with the Redskins and has 77 career starts.
