After only one week in the regular season, the Buffalo Bills have changed their minds on rookie fullback and Western New York native Glenn Gronkowski. The Bills have released Gronkowski, after the undrafted player took only eight snaps against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The move was made to make room for Jerome Felton, the fullback that the Bills initially cut following the final preseason game. Felton was a surprise cut, but it came about after Gronkowski had a standout game against the Detroit Lions in the finale. He was released just one season into a four-year contract.

The Bills initially signed Gronkowski as an undrafted free agent in May, and even though he has been released, maintains practice squad eligibility.
