A familiar face is getting ready to hit free agency with the news that the Buffalo Bills are set to release veteran center Mitch Morse.

Morse began his NFL career with the Kansas City Chiefs as a former second-round pick made by then-general manager John Dorsey back in 2015. Morse immediately took over the starting center role for the Chiefs and was impressive in the way he helped the franchise move on from the loss of Rodney Hudson to the Raiders in free agency.

Morse would go on to play out his entire rookie deal with the Chiefs as an above-average starter who then earned a massive contract in free agency from the Bills during the 2019 offseason. For the last five seasons, Morse has served as the anchor up front for the Bills in front of Josh Allen as they've made their ascent to the top of the AFC East.

The Bills are in the midst of making several cost-cutting moves before free agency begins, and Morse was only one of multiple vets getting their pink slips. Safety Jordan Poyer and defensive back Siran Neal were also let go on Wednesday.

Morse, who has suffered a number of concussions in his NFL career, would be entering his 10th season in the league if he plays another year. He made his first and only Pro Bowl in 2022 with the Bills.
