The Buffalo Bills have be among the early winners of NFL Free Agency, from trading for Stefon Diggs to signing players to rush the passer. This addition of new talent makes the team better as a whole, but it could create some crowded position rooms, likely leading to some departures.

These are the three least likely players to still be on the roster at the end of the season.

1. Robert Foster, WR

The third-year wide receiver has shown great flashes of potential, which could lead to some teams inquiring about him. The Bills do not have much of a use for him, since he is, at best, fifth on the receiving depth chart, competing with Andre Roberts. However, Roberts is more useful in special teams, so Foster could land on another team's roster or practice squad relatively soon.

2. Trent Murphy, DE

In the final year of his contract, Trent Murphy could be traded in order to clear cap space. After acquiring Mario Addison, Murphy will likely not be starting, making him an expensive backup, due nearly $10 million this season.

3. T.J. Yeldon, RB

You may have heard head coach Sean McDermott talking up T.J. Yeldon this offseason, stating that he still has confidence in him and that he was a great veteran leader when he was active last season, which was only for six games. Unfortunately, Yeldon is more of a passing-down back and could be in a situation where he actually plays himself off the team, especially if Devin
Singletary emerges as a clear No. 1. Yeldon averaged just 3.7 yards per carry last season.
