Maine’s Mulligan Released By Bills
Maine's Matt Mulligan had his run with the Buffalo Bill come to an end on Tuesday afternoon when the team gave him his release 13 weeks into the season.The team activated tight end Nick O'Leary, their 6th round draft pick form the practice squad. To make room for him the Bills released Mulligan.
The former PVHS, Husson and University of Maine star was signed by the Bills in the off-season for his blocking skills as the team wanted to incorporate a physical rushing attack. Mulligan played 3 seasons for Buffalo coach Rex Ryan when he was the head coach of the Jets.
The season to date has been a disappointment for the Bills as their defense has under performed and the offense has struggled to score points. O'Leary is best know as a pass catching tight end who broke the Florida State record for receptions by a tight end. The team hopes he can can be another option for quarterback Tyrod Taylor to throw to.
In 12 games for the Bills this season Mulligan had 1 reception for 2 yards.
